I am trying to find my sister I have not seen for 20 years and am having trouble. How can I locate her current address and phone number?

The Salvation Army helps to find lost relatives. We have been contacted by them twice, looking for a man with the same name as my husband, but the one they were trying to find was much older.

Try to find your relative through their profession. If, for example, she was a nurse, you might not have to ask many nurses before someone remembered where your sister lived. Also they might help you to place an advertisement in a trade ot professional magazine.

Often it is difficult to trace people through formal routes because they change their names on marriage or are known by a nickname.

At one time, the Salvation Army had a locator service for finding relatives. They may still provide this service. I don't know if there is a charge, but if there is, it is probably minimal.
