Tips To Search For Birth Father

My sister was adopted and wants to find her birth father. Any idea how to go about this? Her birth mother does not know where he is, and all we have is his name. She has three kids and a single income from her husband, so does not have any money to spend on dubious websites or private investigators. Any tips or free websites in Australia that she can use?

You used to be able to write to the DMV in the state that you suspect they live in and request their driving record. The more information that you have, the better. Include as much as you can (full name, birthdate -- or aproximate birth date.) For a small fee they would send you the record, including the address. I haven't tried it since before 9-11, so they may have changed the law, but it's worth a try.

I have a friend who's adopted child was left in a dumpster to die, therefore she does not know either parents. Her adoptive parents were able to locate a cousin through registering her DNA through a family search site. The link is www.Familytreedna.com. I hope this helps. Of course a member of the family would have had to register their DNA also. I wish you the best.

Does she know what line of work he was in? If he had a trade or profession she may be able to find out a lot by word of mouth. For example, if he was working as a butcher she could ask everyone she met who had connections with the meat trade, for clues to what happened to him.

www.redcross.com.au About 35 dollars I think, but we all know that they are not scams and will help all they can.
