Finding Relatives?

I live in the USA and have 2 cousins born and living in England (or so I believe). The only information I have is their biological father's name and approximate year of birth, along with his father's name and dob. My cousins' biological parents divorced many years ago, their mother remarried and her new husband adopted the children, so I assume they took their adoptive father's surname. My mother (and their aunt) is deceased, their biological father is also deceased, and no other information is available. I do know the gender and approximate age of my cousins. Any suggestions on how I might find them would be great. I'd love to meet them (assuming they'd like to meet me, as well). Thank you.

Have you considered contacting the LDS / Mormons? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been researching geneology for many years and you needn't be Mormon to access their records. Simply find a Family History Center in your vicinity and ask if they can help.

Give the services at a try. They frequently feature 'free to search' weekends and are the most reliable source of finding lost relatives.


If you have any idea the town(s) they live(d) in, you could also try going to the local newsfeed online and either placing an advert (will cost) or making a comment on a community page asking for any information on your family members. I live in Scotland and frequently see these requests and classified adverts from people trying to find family members.

Best luck to you for a happy reunion!

I also live in the UK and I have relatives who live in the US the problem I have is that I cannot view information on the "white pages" and other US sites as I do not live in the US maybe we could help each other do searches on either side as I do have knowledge on how to search here in the UK as I compile my own family tree....let me know if your interested.
