Got long lost relatives you have wondered about? Type the name(s) in Yahoo's People search page http://people.yahoo.com/, and if he/she has a listed phone number, you might find them.

He's going to visit me in September when he travels here for the first time since 1969, when I met him at another cousin's wedding.
