If the surname isn't common, you could try looking for people of the same name in on-line phone books.

Just google Belgium Phone Books eg

During WW2, my father was attached to the Headquarters of 903 Det Military Government in Houdeng Geognies in Belgium. Whilst there he was billeted with a family who treated him like a son. I have names and addresses of the people going back to 1945 and as recent as 1978. Can anyone give advice on how I should attempt to find living relatives?
