Computers and the Internet

If stalkers have access to a victim's computer, they can track them by looking at the history or websites visited on the computer. Spyware software on computers (sometimes sent through e-mail) can send stalkers a copy of every keystroke made, including passwords, Web sites visited, and e-mails sent by victims.

Stalkers can also use the Internet to contact or post things about the victim on message board or discussion forums. They may also verbally attack or threaten victims in chat rooms. Some stalkers will post threatening or personal information about the victim ? including the victim's full name and address. Often stalkers will e-mail the victim, or fill their in-box with spam and have been known to send viruses or other harmful programs to victims' computers.

My story goes as somewhat of a mystery or just simply a dead end.
My grand father came to Trinidad in the late 1800's from Madeira, Portugal.
He worked and had started a family with a woman by the name of Catherine Ferreira.
The only three names of children known to me was that of my father Joseph Irvin Da Silva his eldest sister Marie and Neiza Da Silva.
My father claimed that their were about 8 kids in all....but due to the depature of Joseph Da Silva sr. and the death of his mother Catherine Ferreira my father lost all connections with his family after he turned about thirteen years old.
My father was born in 1908 in Port of Spain,Trinidad and His sister Neiza was born a year later.
I would love to get information to connect the dots.
