    I wish to try and find my long-lost cousins on my paternal side of the family. They left my life when I was young with their estranged Mother after my Uncle and her had an unhealthy marriage. She fled with the children- changed their name by court order.

    I think she just changed their surnames by all accounts- which she told us. We've tried to locate them. I've searched social media, but to no avail. It's been fifteen years since I saw them and we were young. I know of the area they went to at the time, but I am unsure if they are there now.

    Is it practically impossible to find them?
