Question: Is it possible to survive the Grandfather Paradox? What If…

Since quantum mechanics is governed by probabilities, an unmeasured entity (in this case, your historical grandfather) has numerous probable states. When that entity is measured, the number of its probable states singularities (analogous to a psi wave in a world-history line), resulting in a single outcome; in this case, ultimately, you. Therefore since the outcome of your grandfather is known, killing your grandfather would be incompatible with that outcome. Thus, the outcome of one’s trip backwards in time must be complementary with the state from which one left.

What if the Grandfather paradox only works in a system (a reference frame) that is local to the entropy state of that local reference frame’s state of knowledge, i.e., what if, the information of what happened with say a history of a grandfather relative is lost (or older ancestor), either information becomes dispersed and forgotten with time or information within a short period is being trapped by a black-hole. So lets suppose that if this information is lost and no living person or system state has a record of a grandfather or older relative. If you went back in time and killed them, not knowing that they were your grandfather, you would cease to exist?
