Each GPS with lifetime maps will need to be registered, if quite old you would have registered them on If you don't have access to them on any of the garmin sites you will not be able to do a free update I'm afraid...
Your only other option is to try registering them now, they may not have ever been registered before so you can register them now. If they have been registered before then there is little you can do other than to call Garmin and plead your case to transfer the registration... They will then check them against a stolen register and if clear may do this for you...
