The property I work on has some hops growing there but the woman who planted them doesn't remember what kind they exactly are. Is there anywhere where I could find out exactly what kinda hops I have on my hands?

No, not without a gene scan. You can narrow the possibilities based on leaf and sidearm configurations, cone shape and where the cones grow. Not easy. I'd just make a simple pale ale with them and see how you like it.
