    Seeking father

    Tracy Cook Newbie

      I'm trying to locate my father that my mother kept me from my whole life. She's passed away an I found some pictures of him. I need help to find him. All I know is my mom would buy smokes really cheap at the canteen. I'm 41 years old. I was born premature and have been fighting for life even since. I need help!

          Dear Ms. Cook-Ferry,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) does not provide services to locate living individuals.  The records in the custody of NARA were typically transferred from other Federal agencies at least 20-30 years after they were created and used.  Therefore, NARA records are not usually helpful in providing current information about individuals. Please review NARA’s Locating Veterans and Service Members web pages for some ideas.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
