Mike in Brunswick BS: How did they find me? (16) BS: How did they find me? 24 Nov 16

A few days ago I received a "Dear alumnus" letter soliciting funds for a Catholic elementary school in Los Angeles from which I graduated in 1954. Since then, I have had 16 mailing addresses, most of them 3000 miles or more from LA. I have not stayed in touch with anyone from that school. If they had any records on me, I assume they were written or typewritten. Certainly not in any automated database. My name is a very common one. According to, I share it with over 12,000 people in the United States. So how then, after 62 years, did I receive this letter at my current address in Brunswick, Maine?
