SECTION 3: Information on primary relative

The information you provide below will be used to assess the information provided and to perform the family finding. This person must be living outside the U.S.

In Part 4, you will have a chance to list other family members. Below are tips to help you understand the information you need to provide.

What is a Complete Name?

The complete name of a person from Mexico includes their first name(s) and two last names. A complete name could look like the following:

  •    •  Agustin Gonzalez Hernandez

  •    •  Juan Carlos Hernandez Gomez

Here's the breakdown of a person's name:

  •    •  Agustin (first name)
  •    •  Gonzalez (First last name - belongs to the person's father)
  •    •  Hernandez (Second last name - belongs to the person's mother, also called a maiden name)

Some people in Mexico have two first names. Here is a breakdown for the name Juan Carlos Hernandez Gomez:

  •    •  Juan Carlos (first names)
  •    •  Hernandez (Father's last name)
  •    •  Gomez (Mother's last name/maiden name)

Note: If a family member has two first names such as Juan Carlos or Maria Elena, be sure to list both names.

Do not enter nicknames such as Paco or Lalo in this section.

Now enter just the primary relative's name below. DO NOT enter a relative living in the U.S.

First name(s)/Nombres (ex: Alberto, Maria, Juan Carlos)

    No document should be excluded. Some searches have been successful because our specialists found information in documents that was overlooked by case workers. Extended family members have been found because of a return address on an envelope or because of an old address for their relative in Mexico.

Information that is generally not helpful

You may be thinking "more is more" but the adage is true... "Less is more." Here is information that may appear helpful, but generally isn't:

  •    •  The family member's work history, activities and U.S. Social Security number while in the U.S.

  •    •  Physical descriptions (height, hair color, tattoos, etc.)

  •    •  Names of children living in the country under the age of 21.

If you have doubts or concerns about a piece of information, then send it.
