We finally have this blog functional, and want to continue sharing information on a regular basis about the things we’ve found out in Tim’s search for DNA.
We know that there are a lot of skeptics; it seems that every fanciful and obsessive person wants to be Elvis, or his kid. We also know that it will lead to a lot of potential ridicule along the way.
However, there are things we can talk about that help people better understand Tim and why he’s on this quest. If people keep an open mind, there is a possibility that they will see the logic in it. We’re blogging to spread the message that one man has a story and much information, and he has a right to know where he came from, regardless of the identity of the parent.
So, we’re coming with more information on this site. Even if you don’t believe it’s true, if the man is credible (and he is), he should be entitled to the option of knowing either way. Unfortunately, when you’re a 50 year old truck mechanic without the kind of money to go immediately into a court fight, there aren’t a lot of possibilities open to you. That is certainly true when the potential parent is any kind of celebrity, let alone an icon like Elvis Presley.
We have talked with people connected throughout the Presley network; from EPE attorneys to Elvis researchers, from other Presley family members to folks in the music business. One common thread we find (with the exception of EPE), is that nobody demonstrates surprise at the thought of Elvis having other kids. In fact, the most knowledgeable folks with whom we’ve talked, feel it’s a certainty. We’re looking for those potential siblings that seem most credible, and look for DNA matches with any that are willing.
At this point, we’ll start laying out the details for everyone. Please keep an open mind and offer any discussion or questions, or any ideas that you might have for us.
