Following on from Shirley's posting.........

Once you have found the name of your probable half sister, check to see if she is in someone's tree on this site by going to SEARCH ...towards top right of your screen, then clicking on Search all member trees.
There are some good probable family matches shown there.
Click on names to make contact.
I prefer to delete the awful automated message,( which I find too impersonal ) and write a brief message of your own.
