Do these forums really work?

I'd love to hear from Bill McCarthy Jr... originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. His family moved to Daytona Beach, Florida in the late 70's.

I'd really like to know what your life journey has been.

Do you know his birthday? If not, his age? You say he went with his family. Do you know his wife's name? Children's names? If he went with his parents, their names? I am assuming Bill is a nickname and William is his given name? Do you know his middle name? He has a common name so the more you can tell us, the better this will work.

I don't remember his middle name. His family moved to Florida but he did not... only visited. He wasn't married at the time.

Obviously, his dad's name is also William.

My reason for posting limited information is so that I will know for sure that I am really speaking to the right person if I should get a response. Am I wrong to give limited information on this to be sure that any responses I get are real?

I would definitely know Bill's correct age and other information, if I am lucky enough to hear from him!

So, he visited in Florida and returned to Canada? If you go here,
Finding Birthdays and Related Persons in One Step
and put in William McCarthy with Daytona Beach, Florida you will get 9 matches. Give it a try because you would know his family members and I do not. Some give middle names as well.
But it would help to know where we should be looking. I can do US records, but I'm not real good with Canada. Hopefully someone else here would be.
If you know his birthdate, you can run his name with birthdate for the whole country and you may come up with a match that way if he is in the US.
Or you can run his name and his age, but you'll come up with a lot more names. Once it hits 100 names, that is all it gives you. If it says 100 hits, then you are probably missing some.
Give it a try and good luck with your search.

Thanks for your help.

As I said, he's from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. His family moved to Florida around 1979 because of his dad's health. Bill returned to Ottawa to live and work.

I bet he stayed in Canada due to his job....

Any Canadians out there ???

Thank you.

I'm going to have to look for an old letter to see if the middle initial is right.

Any idea about how to research further without contacting someone and possibly having the wrong person??

The J might also stand for Jr., just don't know.
I usually call them and if their are the wrong person I apologize. If it was in the states you could use that site I gave you before to see who they are related to, but I don't know the Canadian sites. I was hoping someone with more experience in Canada would hop in. Never know, they still might.

Don't think it's Jr. I hope I can find the letters that I once had. I believe that he put his middle initial in his return address.

They tend to use the roman numerals after their names up there... I think..
At least he did.

It would be really amazing if someone from Canada... who may know their family history... would happen upon this post. Or even just someone from Canada!

I live just down the road from Daytona. Surely his parents are still in the area. If you need someone to make some phone calls, let me know.
