What is the best way to find my biological grandfather ?

My mother has never met her real father. She asked me to find a way to find him. I’ve heard of 23andme and Ancestry has been used to find your ethnicity background. Is there anything that will link me or my mother to her biological father?

    Ancestry and 23andMe only help you identify your relatives if they (or someone related to them) has also done DNA testing through that company.

    Depending on your gender-- you can do a DNA test to find out

    If you do an Ancestry DNA test, you will be able to open an account and see not only what ethnicity you are, but also who--meaning which people--share your DNA. This will most likely lead you to your actual ancestry, not just your regional ancestry.

    written records

    Using a DNA-company only works if

    - you send in your mother's DNA

    - this grandparent or a close relative of his took a test at the same company

    - and allowed the company to pass on a contact-adress

    I would look at your mothers Birth Certificate.  It should list her biological mother and father.

      Don't tell him what it is, though. Keep him guessing.

    Put an ad in every newspaper in the world, saying something like "Hi! If you're my grandfather, get in touch. Thanks". You'll probably get lots of replies. To get even more, you could add "Cash prizes available" at the end of the ad.

    use people finder websites and see what you can find with the clues you already have

    If she knows who he is and just hasn't met him, you can probably find him with google.  If she doesn't know who he is, then 23andme might be your best bet.
