My Grandmother Dorothy Ann Delaney (GUEST) went missing in January of 1965.

Her last known address was in Gilbertsville Mass.

I am trying to find out what happened to her.
I have her date of birth and that is about it.

There was a file opened on her as a missing person by her brother inlaw who was at the time a On the Police force in a local town. Also there was some FBI envolvement.

There is speculation that she may have had a bad ending.

Where should i begin in trying to locate her or her burial spot ?

Thank you

Welcome to WS, kdkpboylan.

Am sorry to read of your Grandmother's situation. You will find support and resources here to help you in your search to find her.

How old was you GM at the time she went missing? Have you checked the Social Security Death Index as yet? If not here is the URL: http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi
There are a few Dorothy A Delaney listed. You can check your GM's birth date against those listed.

Hi KDKPBoylan - Have you contacted the local police dept to see if they still have the original police report?

Do you have any family members still living who remember your grandmother and the circumstances around her disappearence? Was she married?

There are several Dorothy A. Delaney's in the SS Death Index for MA you might want to look at. Do you know her birthday?
