If the person is still alive, I think it would be polite to ask their permission before adding them to any tree. ;D
If you ask them, then you can get any details from them directly.

If your tree is for your own personal use then you can add whoever you like.  If it is to be published on the internet then you must be much more careful. 
www.bt.com or 192.com might help to find someone or maybe you could check death entries or wills?

Hi Sillgen it def is for myself I dont publish my tree and I norm know every living person on there but this is different and meant so much to my nan felt I owed it to her to try to find her half brother who was treated badly amd thanks for the advice mayne I will get credits for 192.com and try that Jane

Hi Janeann
I would suggest finding a local website for the area you think this person lives, something like the Wigan world site that has forums for looking for people & family history, but obviously in their area. Good luck :)
