I have lost their email address and have had post returned so have the address wrong. Or maybe they have moved confused.

Short answer to this - no! You could register then delete your profile afterwards though

Been there, done that. You'll then be forever pestered to rejoin. Hate the wretched site.

Damn.

A card I sent for her dd has been returned. Is there a way to find out if I have the address right, or they have moved? They live in France.

Have you a mutual friend who is on Facebook who could send her a message?

I think that you can, because you can treat the facebook address as an email address - username@facebook.com .
You do need to know the username for that though.

No, mutual friends. I know her name but is that what you mean by username?

No, everyone has an individual facebook username, there are lots of people with the same name. You see a persons username in the address bar when you are on their profile page, but you do need to be registered for that.

On the other had, registering for facebook is very easy, and you dont have to use if after if you dont want to.

Create a free email address through Google + sign up using that ,you can unsubscribe afterwards.

The Google account is useful to use whenever you're asked for an an email address + you don't want to give out your "proper " one !

I will make an email address up. If it is my name but a different address will it come up as a previous entry I had?

I have made an email account and just signed up to FB. Now need to look to see if she is still on there.
