Locating 3 Half Sisters

Someone told my brother who lives in Kansan City, MO that he has 3 sisters. I know the mother's name, and the maiden names of the girls. The mother more than likely has passed by now.

Locating/finding people is usually a very difficult and very time consuming task but the more information you have, the easier it could be. it appears (from your question) that you have very little information so your task will be to first start finding out more about who you are looking for.

You say maiden names of the girls - would that be the same last name as your brother? That may not help with the present time as they may be married and now using their husband's name.

Where is your brothers (and your?) father? What does your mother know about a previous marriage and children from that marriage? What about your father's relatives? Your grandparents? Are you saying nobody in your whole family even knew these girls existed?

Where would this first family have lived? You really need to find out what city and maybe you could find info from schools in that area.

You will have to do a lot of research before anyone can help as the information you are showing will just not be enough - but you can still try.

Here are some sites to look at and some links to show you how to get started.

Facebook and Twitter, and search for your missing friend or relative.

The National Center for Missing Adults or Family and Friends of Missing Persons. … Relatives-Online … f-8&oe=utf-8

You may even be able to get some information from these sites: or provides online access to records that can help you to build a family tree and find out about relatives you didn't know that you had. Some online genealogy services even provide DNA testing to complement your findings in the online databases.

Thank you so much for posting a reply. After my mom and dad split up, he moved to Kansas City, MO. As told, the girls have my dads name, the same as my maiden name. When he came to visit, he talked about a Betty Cook. He never mentioned that he had three girls with her. But someone who knew these girls asked my brother if he was any relation to the Brizendine girls, and their mother was Betty Cook, and they told my brother that the girls looked a lot like him. I will look into these sites and see what I can find out about them. I do know that it is hard to find females, because they usually marry.

My father passed away in 1998 and my mother in 2007. I don't think my mother knew about dad. Only what I know now, but yes, they carried my dads name because the person telling my brother about the Brizendine girls, says it all. It is also my maiden name. They also mentioned their mother was Betty Cook, which my dad has mentioned her name when he would come to visit, but he never told us they had kids together. I am 69 years old now, but these girls were born after i was 15 or 16 years old, and maybe later. He never met Betty until our dad left us. Us three were his aires, as he didn't tell us about the others. These girls didn't graduate high school until around 1982 and after, depending how far apart in age they were. I am looking into the year books today.

You can try and search the kansas city star online. If you don't mind posting the names, post them. I live very near Kansas City. Also check facebook, some people put notices on craigslist as well. Also google their names, check the various highschool yearbook sites and genealogy sites.

I was fourteen years old when my dad might have come into contact with Betty Cook. My half sisters should be younger than me, and I am 69 years old. I do not know their first names, but they went by the name of Brizendine. I also live near Kansas City. It is about 1 and a half hour from here, or maybe two hours. I will try to figure out how old they might be and look through the alumni pictures at some high schools. Thanks for your help.
