locating lost family (long after adoption)

my mother just celebrated her 62nd birthday and still has never met her biological father. she was born to a young woman in the philippines who gave her up for adoption. her biological father was a soldier during the war, and had to leave before she was born. from our knowledge, he knew of her birth because he sent baby items to her bio-mother. the only information we have is his full name, where he lived, and that he died in 1988 (from the ss death index). my mother would like to find if she has any other family, to know her roots, but we don't know where to start. she's already 62, is it too late to start looking? how do we start our search for her family she may have (siblings, etc...)?

  • If you found the fathers death cert look for his birth cert. From that you'll get his mothers name and you could search that to see if he had any siblings.
