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, (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.

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

  • 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.

I'm looking for my aunt I've never seen before I know what year she was born and I know her maiden name and I know where she was born. I don't have much money. I've been looking for so many years and had no luck. Could someone please help me.
