    I’m working on my ancestry and I found out that my aunt, Jean DiMauro, used to sing on a short music spot sponsored by SAVOL Bleach in the late 1940’s. Jerry Jordan was the musical director (?) at the time. My Auntie Jean who was also my Godmother died very young- 49 years-old in 1972.

    Unfortunately, the search for my ancestry did not begin until very recently and there are only a couple of relatives with limited memory left.

    Can you help me, please?

    Did DuMont cover the 1948 conventions, or did WNHC pick-up coverage from either ABC, CBS, or NBC?
