I am trying to find my American Norwegian biological father, and have no idea where to start.

All my English mother can tell me is that his first name was Arnie (or Arne/Arnold), he is American of Norwegian descent, and was in the US Navy based at Rota, Spain in 1970 when I was conceived. She has mentioned Minnesota as possibly where he comes from, but is not sure.

Not a lot to go on without a surname - does anyone know if it's possible to access Naval records with such little information? Or any other source of information I could try?

Grateful for any advice you could give me.

Try to send a letter to the

National Personnel Records Centre

Give all the info you have and see if they are willing to help or maybe they would agree on forwarding a letter.

Good luck.
