This reply is also so old that you may not need it anymore. If you only have a name is it a name from your mom or your dad? If it is from your Dad you are more likely to have some luck. The best thing to do is to just research the family name and then try to find a starting place. If you would like some help or dont mind sharing information I would be glad to try and help you.

Has anyone tried finding out about family when the only thing you have is a name???? If you have any tips please let me know, I would definitely welcome them. Please Help!!!!!!!!!!
This reply is three months after your posting, so maybe you have found something by now. If not, I will try to help a little.
Please let me know a little more of what you are looking for. Be as specific and detailed as you can. Are you trying to get started on a family name, without knowing any individuals? Are you looking for a specifici individual?
If I put my mother and father together on the free family tree builder program, it makes them married.
They were never married.
If I put my step dad on there, it says he is my father.
If I add my step dad as another spouse, there is no way to add children between him and my mother...
