Depends what dates and location,

Telephone directories, newspapers, census, military records,  history of a location, church records, Familysearch.org.  and so much more.

Many thanks for the reply. I think he was born 11/April/1926  Norman beaston and died may 1988 in Pennsylvania. I have no idea how to get information about any family members. I’ve tried all ancestry sites and trawled the internet. Any help would be great. Thank you

Ancestry has a picture of Norman Beaston, whom it purports was born on April 11, 1926, and who died on May 15, 1988, but when I tried to access the link, it would not work.

I did find a listing for a "N.E. Beaston," who was born and died on those dates in the U.S. Social Security Death Index, 1935-2014.  https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=3693&h=3649445&tid=&pid=&queryId=1b45d70c6850abaaf0a5b07729aa073a&usePUB=true&_phsrc=qcN39523&_phstart=successSource  However, it seems to tie that listing to a Nora Zigler and I wonder if someone tied a picture to her by mistake.

The dates as given -- birth 11 April 1926, death 15 May 1988 absolutely fit Nora Ellen Zigler (except the death is a month off):

Name: Nora Ellen Ziegler [Nora Ziegler Beaston] [N Beaston]

Gender: Female

Race: White

Birth Date: 11 Apr 1926

Birth Place: McVeytown MI, Pennsylvania

Death Date: 15 Jun 1988

Father: Ira C Ziegler

Mother: Myrtle N Spickler


I cannot find Norman Beaston at all.
