To find lost relatives, search Internet databases created for genealogical research, ask family members for information, participate in missing relative discussion boards, and register on social networking sites. Other suggestions include browsing public records where the person may have lived and accessing Family History Centers.
Often, family members have vital information about the history of the person sought. While staying sensitive to any negative feelings between people, finding out the missing person's birthdate, birthplace, last known address and work history may aid the search. Throughout the country, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints offers archived information, including newspapers and documents, to anyone in the community at Family History Centers.
