Locating a Lost Parent?

I have been reading numerous posts on your website and thought I would see if anyone could help me. I found out several years ago that the man who raised me is in fact not my biological father. I am 52 years old now and desperately want to find out any information on my biological father, but the only information I have for him is his first and last name, approximate age and that he worked at a restaurant called the Hi Spot in Corona, California in 1963.

My family moved from California not long after because the father who raised me was in the service and we were relocated. I am a member of ancestry.com, have searched Facebook, contacted the Corona Historical Society, researched the Corona Library and googled numerous other free websites, but keep hitting a brick wall. Was hoping someone could share their wisdom with me as to what else I can do to possibly find him with so little information.

Is the restaurant by any chance still in business? Have you searched old newspapers on microfisch? Have you searched the social security death index?

If you can't find any online trace of him there's the sad possibility that he died in the 90s , before he could leave a digital footprint.

Thanks for your response. The restaurant went out of business in 1969 and the owner was in her 70's in the 1960's so we hit a road block with that. My mother only knew his name and approximate age. His name is Donald Martin who would be been around 1943 to 1944 so you can imagine how many hits it get for that name. In 1963 he was about 19 and worked at the Hi Spot in Corona, CA and along with his very common name that is all we know. I will try the website you mentioned. Thank you again for responding.

Try familytreenow.com. It gives names and even addresses of people who have not opted out.

I assumed you used white pages? I see there are some Donald Martins over 65 years of age near Corona. Good luck. I have been searching for 2 years for a friends mother so don't give up!
