Hi there,

I am looking for my Uncle's children... Now here's the story.

He had children (twin daughters) with a mexican woman in California and he used to pay child support.

The mother did not write down my uncle's name on the birth certificate but another man's name - who's name i don't know (this is what i heard and do not know if this is possible or true due to the claiming of child support) My uncle died in 2001.

I have his SSN is this of any use?

Its been 30 years and i would love to find them. I am not a resident in the U.S. but reside in the UK.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. His details are as follows:

Peter G Martany - 57 years today (DOB- March 21st 1958) - Lived in Encino, CA.

Many thanks and all the best,

Alex.

With his SSN and you reasons for location him, this is pretty simple.

Contact the SSN office in your area but remember, you'll need to prove what your looking and why.

Social Security will not divulge any information, but if you knew the names of the children & had enough identifying info for Soc. Sec. to reasonably identify the person than Soc. Sec. may forward a letter on your behalf. It would then be up the the recipient of the letter to respond or not.

However, if you don't know the children's names than I don't believe that Soc. Sec. could help.

Just found his obit at this site:

ObitsArchive.com - newspaper obituary search - archive of obituaries and death notices from hundreds of newspapers

To see the obit though one has to subscribe, but it looks like you can also just purchase the one obit.

PETER G. MARTANY Modesto Bee, The (CA) - November 16, 2001


Googled Peter G. Martany & it looks like in the late 1990's he worked for Wells Fargo. Although I'm sure the Wells Fargo Human Resources department would not give you any info, perhaps they may have a family contact & would be willing to forward a letter on your behalf. I don't even know if they would do that much, but it's a thought. This seems to be a Wells Fargo H.R. phone #: 1-800-869-3557

Also, you can try to get Peter's death certificate from California (assuming that he passed on there.) In the U.S. death certs are filed by state. The date of death is 13 Nov 2001. There may be helpful info there, i.e. name of person giving info, name of cemetery.
Birth, Death, Fetal Death, Still Birth & Marriage Certificates

Peter's not listed on Find A Grave - Millions of Cemetery Records

Found on Ancestry that Peter's original name was Petros Martirosians, born 21 Mar 1958 in Rasht, Iran.

If Peter naturalized here in the U.S. than his nat papers **may** list the names of his children.
http://www.uscis.gov/genealogy
You'll need to provide proof of death to receive his nat papers.

If he wasn't married to the children's mother than I'm not certain if the names would be listed there.

Also, you can check if Peter left a will, if so than the children may be noted in his will.

The will is likely filed in the Probate Court in the town / county in which he last resided. Probate records are public records so you'll have no problem getting them (assuming there are any records.)

First off i would like to thank you so much for your responses and help. It is really appreciated.

He did not have a will and his name was not stated on the birth certificate.

It seems that the child support is only accessible by the direct people involved, but if there was a court-case prior...Would this mean that the name of the mother and children will be stated on record there?

Sorry, but I have no idea about that.

Did he have any other family or friends in California who might know the names of the children? Do you know the name of the children's mother? If so, you can search the California birth index on-line.
