I am trying to find someone and all the info I have is her birth name, birth date, birth mother and birth father's name, and her place of birth. I have no idea what her name is now. How do I find out what her name is and where she might be now? I cannot afford to pay an investigator and have tried many so-called "free" websites. Any ideas on how to find her? Please help.

Have you tried to contact living relatives or friends? You might locate a paying website that allows you to key in minimal information on someone by using their birth name, birth date, and place of birth. I would begin my search for in this manner. (04/20/2009)
You can try to Google her name or parents names and see what that gives you. I also think that the Red Cross helps locate people, so I was told. Good luck. (04/21/2009)
Start with Google. Google each of the names including the birth place. Use www.zabasearch.com. It's amazing what you can find there. Go to www.classmates.com or www.reunion.com for school info.
Zabasearch gives you an option to plug in a birth year or age which helps. There is another site (I can't think of it now, but you'll probably find it in your Google and zaba search that shows names of possible relatives. In 2005 after our 43rd high school reunion, I was able to find every living person I graduated with using these two searches. And I hadn't been back to the high school in 43 years. Good luck.
Also Google the combination of names, say, her name plus her parents' names. Be sure and use quotation marks and + signs. Example: "John Doe" + "Jane Doe" or even Google the name as "Doe, John". (04/25/2009)
Since you are referring to "birth" names, I'm assuming you are looking for an adoptee. Go to Yahoo Groups and join one of the Adoptee Search groups. I found my birth Mom this way. Folks are very helpful, but you must realize that it will take time. Also, have you researched the adoptions laws in the state in which the person was born? Many states have registries for those searching. God Luck. (04/25/2009)
