Looking for a Half Sister

What is the best way to find a half sibling when you are not sure of birthdate, birth place, nor current residence? She has the same father as I.


Thanks in advance.

You could try familytreenow.com. You could use her name or your fathers name.

My friends on my high school reunion committee call me SUPER SLEUTH, as I can find most people and usually I find them in under 1 hour.

So my secret is to write down as much as I DO KNOW about the person and then start with a basic Google search putting "+" signs between the words...so if the person's name is Jane and the father's name is Tom Smith my first search would be Jane + Tom + Smith.


Then I play around with using quotes so Jane + "Tom Smith".

If that doesn't work, then I start adding things...like Jane Tom Smith Daughter or Jane Tom Smith Daughter Jackson High School or Jane Tom Smith Daughter Red Hair

Think about any and every detail you do know and that may help.

I have found people on Facebook, LinkedIN, Classmates.com and sadly, many in the obituaries as my classmates have been dropping like flies the last few years (SO SAD).

Obviously the more you know the better...so do you have a last known residence (even if it is just a street or a city). Do you know if she has other siblings and their last name? Do you know her mother's first and last name (married or maiden name)? Did she go to a high school--the name can be a good source to help search as many classes like mine have reunion sites where you can contact a person. Did she go to college? How old would she be (approximately). Do you know who her last employer was? Does she have hobbies?


Post back with how your search goes!! Prayers that you can be reunited!!

I would suggest you start a file for saving information that you gather so maybe one small link will lead to another.

A journal should contain all information you find.
Be sure to add date you found info, where you found it, who gave it to you, and ID information of that person (name, address, phone number, relative?, friend?, Or?) as this will be your basis for finding your half sister.

I would suggest starting with any and all relatives that may or may not have any names, locations, dates and leave your number where they can reach you if they can help you in the future.
These will be your most valuable links to finding your relative.
Perhaps your father or his relatives/friends can give you a start?
Check with uncles, aunts, cousins; anyone that has ever known your father.


There are a lot of sites to check but it will not be easy and it will not happen overnight.

Here are some links to check out:
