Looking for My Half Siblings

My father had 5 children (that we know of). 3 daughters and 2 sons. His name was Donald Wayne Cobb. His oldest daughter is Donielle. She was adopted out and had her name changed. His sons are Josh and Jason. My name is Sherrie and the youngest daughter is my sister Adrian. Adrian and I are full sisters from our mother Sherry. We are looking for our older sister and brothers. I have tried looking from my fathers name with no luck. I have hit dead ends on every endeavor. Would love help with this!

I have found an adopted our adopted out nephews by posting ads in the small community papers that come in the mail once a week (they are cheaper than regular newspapers). I put it in the "Attention" or "Notice" column. You could list his name in the ad in the town he was last living in. Also Facebook has been a GREAT place to find lost loved ones...there are various "Lost and Found" type groups on there. Good Luck!

Have you tried Ancestry.com? It could give you leads to other relatives who could provide answers to your questions.

I would go with the other advice and try Facebook. Perhaps you have a site called Friends Re-united? I would be cautious about using a newspaper, because on Facebook you can maintain some anonymity while getting to know anyone who answers.

Search city and court records. Where did she have her name changed? Facebook may be of help by locating others with the same last name who may have knowledge of your father's whereabouts. If you know the high school he graduated from, the class reunion committee may have info also.

Do the DNA testing that Ancestory.com offers (I think it is around $100). Then register your results. If they have done the same, the computer will match you up to each other.

I have looked through Facebook and tried Ancestry. I found my father's information but only first names of all of us children. It has been a lengthy search with nothing but dead ends.
