Question: Can anyone help me to trace a member of my husbands family!?
Now that my husband has stopped travelling around the world with his job!.in which time he lost contact with one of his daughters he would just like to know if he has become a Grandad!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Here is a good link to help locate living relatives http://genealogy!.about!.com/library/autho!.!.!. I would also try searching public listings in the area of the last known address!. Talk to the people that live there now or the neighbors some may have kept in contact or the people that live there may have a forwarding address!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

Which Country!?
If it's the UK, and you know her married name, you could try www!.192!.com to see if her husband has a listed phone number; if a number is shown, it will only be for the person in the house who pays the phone bill, so try each person listed in turn!.
If in doubt about "location", type in "United Kingdom"
If it is UK, I may be able to help some more with another source, but can't put personal details of anyone on here!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

please ignore the psychologists on this board who try to find conflict where none exists!.

Is there any indication as to where this daughter might have gotten off to!? Are we talking an english speaking country!? Eastern or Western Hemisphere!?

Not enough information to even attempt to help!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

A good US resource is Zabasearch!. It works if the person you seek has a listed address and/or phone number -- but of course you'll need to know her married name, and her husband's would be useful, too!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Email me the name of the daughter and the information that you about her last whereabouts and I'll try to look her upWww@QuestionHome@Com

Not really your responsibility!. He should have kept in contact and you don't really know the whole story, do you!. He may have been told to "Bog off!" due to his behaviour, in which case, he probably has asked you to do it for not just one, but two reasons:
1) He is lazy and has had no interest really in keeping in contact with her!.
2) He did something bad and knows that if he tried to contact her directly the authorities may be involved!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
