Sometimes it's more challenging

To answer questions as my friends' personal librarian rather than in my professional life, especially with my friends. Today's challenge: find someone from the past with a probable address, a profession, place of work 25 years ago, race, deafness, a brother with a particular first name, and with only the person's first name to work with. Are they dead or alive, and if the latter, where? And of course, I have no better person search resources at home than the average person. These sorts of requests keep me on my toes. This one isn't looking good, but I haven't given up yet. :)
