What did I know when I started this article about Genie?  Genie is called variously 13 or 13 1/2 in postings describing when she was discovered by authorities in 1970.  Until today I had no idea of her surname, the names of her parents, siblings or where they lived except the vague "Los Angeles" area.  Various postings online claim that her real name has been kept private.  I had thought that was because documents were sealed, but as you see shortly, I was wrong.  I knew she was found in 1970 when her mother, escaping from her abusive husband, went to social services.  I knew that she was examined in various laboratory settings, that her father shot himself, and that her mother was living for some time afterwards and eventually at some point got custody of her again.
