Fred Varn makes genealogy seem easy. He found a half-brother he'd never met by Googling "Snooks Varn" and clicking on the first result.
Their father was Herbert Woodrow Varn, known as "Snooks."
Fred Varn was researching family history when he entered "Snooks Varn" on Google, and Jerry's name showed up.
Before now, none of the brothers tried to find each other because they didn't know for sure if they existed - or where they'd be, Fred Varn said. [Link]
