Dear Soaps,
Can you explain how Audrey Hardy is Elizabeth Webber's grandmother on General Hospital? And whatever happened to her sister Sarah? Thank you. &#151 Edgolfnut

Dear Edgolfnut,
I've answered this question before, but I keep getting so many requests about it, it's earned a repeat performance. Here's the deal: Elizabeth is the daughter of Jeff Webber. Jeff's parents are Helene and Dr. Steve Hardy, though Jeff didn't learn that Steve was his birth father until he was an adult. Steve married Audrey, which explains how Audrey is Elizabeth's grandmother, though not by blood. Sarah, who had a brief fling with Cassadine heir Nikolas, left Port Charles in 1998 to join her family in Europe. (Delaina Dixon)
