Need help.....don't know where to start?

Phoenix, AZ

I've been trying to help my brother find more info on his biological father. We know:

Milo e Davis
born 1.26.1926 - died 1999 in california

He has no info on him, if there are siblings? Health backgrounds?

I'm leary of everything I google saying it's free until you click on it then they want to charge you. I don't mind paying, just don't want to do it and end up with no info?

As mommagoose mentioned, you can go to rootsweb. There, you can print off a request form to send for the social security records. I think it costs about $26.00

You should be able to get a Death Certificate which will provide you with additional information. Normally, it will list the Father and the Mother (with maiden name). You can order a certified copy at the following link for $12.00. That's inexpensive. My state (MD) charges $25.00 for the same thing.

This link is legitimate since it is state sponsored. One has to watch a number of other offers that are offering there services to produce a death certificate. They may be legitimate but a lot more expensive.

Once you have their parents names you can begin the descendant search. Normally, you can start checking through the census which is available from 1930 back to 1790. Prior to 1850 the census only shows the name of the head of household plus numbers of individuals at various age levels.

The 1930 census should include him at age 4.

Hope this helps.
