Hi all and apologies if this is in the wrong place but I'm trying to help a friend find her extended family and looking for advice on how to go about it
She was born in the 1950's and brought up by her birth mother who to this day won't discuss her father. She knows his name and that he was from Dublin but she lives abroad and cant do anything and has asked for my help in finding any extended family.
What should be my first step...I've tried Facebook but cant find any names that match there.
Can I check any website to see if he's now dead and start backwards from there or do I need his full date of birth and death to find anything on him at all by going into the office that registers all this info.
Any advice would be appreciated
