Use the Internet to Find Lost Relatives

I found my siblings by googling my maiden name. Two of them had gone onto Facecook and came up in a search I did with Google. Since I have a very rare maiden name, that made it easy.


Even better, Mocavo.com (a genealogical search engine) is now online, specifically made for finding ancestors and missing people. Other sites to try:

  • GenesReunited has a missing people branch of their website that is world wide in scope.

  • Ancestry.com has free tree search and you might find a genealogy that lists your missing relative.

  • Rootsweb.com also has free tree search.

  • USGenWeb has volunteers who will check various things if they are able.

  • Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, aka RAOGK, is now on Facebook, and has many volunteers available for look-ups.
