I have an ex-brother-in-law, whose children didn't know THAT much about their natural father, they found him.
Keep trying, Michael, you can find him. Maybe, some old newspapers. And if you have any names to go on at all, the Morman's in Salt Lake City, Utah will probably have the info. If you are in a large town, some of the public libraries have access to their system.
Good luck

Have you tried

if you are not his dad. then that is not at all funny. I am adopted and it is a serious matter. It takes alot of courage to even begin to confront something of this nature. I am sure that if you were in the same type of situation you would not want to be made fun of. If you really are, congratulations Michael it paid off.
