Hello, I have begun to search for my father I have never met again! I am not going to give up.
The only piece of information I have is a picture of him when he was 18.
He is said to be from the Dallas-Texas area. He graduated in 1971. His name is Cleveland Washington.

If you know he graduated in 1971, and if you know where he graduated, you should contact the school for more information about him, they would have his SS#, DOB, etc. With that, you should be able to find him easily.

Good luck.

I'm not a professional researcher but I did an internet search and came across three Clevelands who live or lived in Texas:

Cleveland D. Washington in La Marque, Texas (near Houtson) who is now 63 years old. In 1971 he would have been about 20 years old, so maybe too old for your search..No address or phone, however.

There is also a Cleveland Lee Washington who is 59 years old who lived in Tyler, Kilgore, and Houston TX ...

and another Cleveland who lived in Romney WV, Richmond VA and Houston TX...also 59 years old.

Sorry no phones or addresses for any of them...but maybe it's a start for you...
Good luck.

Professional? Not everyone can pay for sites, or their job gives them access to records.
Yes, there are long time members who've been very successful in helping people. High success rates.

I differ with comment #3. There are enough people with experiences helping all kinds of people, in all kinds of scenarios, where this forum may be a good starting point if not more.
I can assure you that people I know from this forum, can tell you that an address and phone number can be very far from an ending. Many scenarios require more than that, and the people looking for their friends or family need extra help, and in some cases ongoing support.

europeanone: The information you have found can benefit the Op.
More people like you need to offer help, make suggestions, give ideas.

You do have more info that may help - -

when & where were you born?
did you grow up with your mother? if so, where did she meet him? what town?
if not, were you adopted? where?

little pieces that may help
.................................................
There are 2 TX High Schools who record a Cleveland Washington in their 1971 classes - both in Dallas area; Desoto and WW Samuell.

The Dallas library site says they have a copy of the WW Samuell 1971 yearbook. A call might get a scan from a helpful librarian of the Washington in that book.

If either of these schools have facebook pages you might try there.

Thank you so much for your help. My mother said that in 1972 he had his driver's license. She says that she thinks he told her that his last name was Washington. I do not know if Mr. Cleveland Lee Washington is an African American male. I did grow up with my mother. She told me that he would come down from Dallas to Houston. She says that he is one year older than her. She is 59. He may have been one year younger. She told me that he went to a Robertta Flack concert in 1972 as well. I don't know if that information will work. Is there a way that I can search for him just by using his first name for his driver's license? If any one of you comes across this picture in a year book, please let me know. Thank you again for all of your help. God bless! I look forward to seeing what other information you find as I continue to search as well.
I am going to go out on a limb and call that number. I am nervous, but I have to find out. Afterall, he is around that same age as my mother.
