Gene Widhoff was my great-uncle. Judging from the dates and California residences, it looks like you've got the info for Gene and his wife Cathy there. I believe Gene's end of the family was from Russia, so might not be in a direct line to your family tree. But then again, I don't know much about his past other than that he was my grandmother's half brother. Gene was a really elegant man who did "Lobby Cards" and posters for some early Hollywood movies (in about the 1930's and 1940's). He ultimately was a courtroom artist in the 1960's and I remember as a kid watching the news every night during the trial of Charles Manson, because Gene's sketches of that trial were broadcast each night. If you come across any other info on him and it isn't a bother, I'd love it if you passed it along my way. Good luck with your search and website! All best from New York,
