Hello to everyone !
I'm trying very hard to find my mother's brother.This has proved to be an extremelly difficult task for me.I do know that he changed his name and that he lives somewhere in Alberta.He emmigrated from Romania to Canada in the late 70's ,now he would be in his 50's ,he's never been married,he's never owned a property and he's never had any dealings with the law.I do know that he surrendered his driving license...is there any hope of finding him ?...ohh...and i believe he may not want to be found...do i stand a chance ?

Thank you and please help me !
BTW...I contacted a PD and i can't afford one at $85/hour...

Susca City

Default More info on my uncle from Romania

He's name when he came to Canada in 1978~1979 (i'm not sure) was Gheorghe (first name) and Budimir (his last name).Now his first name could have been spelled George...and he was waiting for his arrival to Canada from a camp in Italy (possibly called Latina...i remembered once i saw a post card from him from the italian city or town called Latina).He has changed his name to George Bernard and for a whille he lived in the city of Edmonton (untill at least 1987~1988).He used to rent a basement suite not far from the downtown Edmonton (Alberta,Canada).Then a few years later a heard that he may have moved to Calgary...

That is about most of the information i have on my uncle George...or however calls himself this days...i used to reffer to him as "uica Ghita" which in romanian translates to ...uncle george.

Thank you and if somebody can help find my uncle i would very much appreciate it,again thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to all

Is it possible that he's using the name Budimir again?

Found a listing for:

George Budimir
19 Old Orchard Ave.
Grimsby ON L3M 3H9

Here's a link to Canada411 - there are a few George Bernards (6 in Alberta).
