I have a half brother in Germany, but I have not seen him for many years. I know his name, and I know that he grew up in Lübeck.

I tried to search for his name but with no luck.

Does anybody have links to suitable search engines on German citizens, or other tips on how to find people in Germany, by only knowing their name and age?

Sadly in germany it costs money to find a person just with his/her name.

But you could try the german telephone-number "book":

Just type in his first and last name and as "ort" you can write where he might live, and then search for it.

You may call the Einwohnermeldeamt Lübeck (http://anonym.to/?http://www.meldebox.de/Einwohnermeldeamt/L%FCbeck/) and ask them! ;)

Flying fuxx! I found him in the telephonebook, it took 2 minutes!

Lives in Nürnberg now. Ho ho, this is funny. I`ll send him a little greeting for Xmas and an invitation...

Thank you very much for good help!

( Nothing like German effectivity and systems...:worship...)

( Good he is not French...The same process may have taken 3 months if possible at all...:P )

You can use Geogen.

Its a German genealogy cartographic tool. You can enter the surname and than youll see on a map where Germans with this name life in Germany, and how many. :)

Just enter the surname into the search-engine. Then you´re prompted to choose to see the statistic in absolute or relative facts.

Hope I could help! :)
