If you’re trying to find anyone on the Web, whether a long lost friend from high school, lost love, long lost part of family history, or anyone from your past , I suggest you some steps below which will help. Step1.Google
Do a Google search on the name, of course.
Step2.People Search EnginesThere are a few search engines that fine-tune regular Google results top focus on people-finding.If you’re trying to figure out how to find people online or offline, then you may very well be interested in something called an online people finder service. These services allow you to find people such as an old classmate, an old friend, a relative or whomever else for that matter. There are various sites such as these available online, some of which are free and some of which have paid inclusions. The paid ones give you a little more info and more individualized for more of an investigation type of a situation. The free ones will give you things like the person’s name, relatives, location and even a phone number.
These website services are incredibly useful but also convenient technology wise. Back in the day before these sites and the Internet existed you would have to do some hefty detective work for yourself in order to find any information about anyone, even going as far as hiring a private investigator which could cost thousands of dollars! Now you simply turn on your computer, visit the website, enter in the information it asks for, and voila you’re home free.
You can find anyone you want, day or night, simple as that, all you need is an Internet connection and a clue! Also, I’m finding that a lot of these services talk about celebrity people finders, and on a lot of these sites it actually does work! The inclusions will include things like fan email address, fan p.o box, location, age of celebrity, and a lot more. Pretty cool stuff, and as said above it’s a great way to get reintroduced to an old mate, friend, or a relative and YES these do work, check them out the next time you are looking for someone online!
The Internet is a great place to find old family and friends – if you know where to look. Two websites you should check out if you need to find an old colleague are WhoWhere at www.Reunion.com, and FreePeopleSearchInfo at http://www.dcpantaffiliates.com/Free-People-Search-Information4All . These sites give you a variety of ways to search for people on and off the Internet, and just might help you find someone you haven’t talked to in years.
Step3.Phone Book.The beauty of online searching is that there are now national (and international) phone books, so you can search the entire US.
Step4.Google News.If your person was mentioned in the news, then a search of news past and present may well turn up the name.
Step5.SSDI.The grimly-named Social Security Death Index has records of 82 million US deaths since 1963. Unless you’re sure you’re looking for someone who is still alive, SSDI is a good place to search.
Step6.Intelius.This is a fee-based service, but they have a deep database, and you can do a preliminary search for free, which will show (among other things) age, city and relatives.
Step7.Social Networks –Most of the people-information on the various “friends” sites on the internet will show up in a regular Google search, but they can easily get lost. Head directly to MySpace, FaceBook, and Classmates.com (for a school-specific search) to see if your person is listed (and pay attention to some of the advanced search functions offered, like the Friend Finder at FaceBook).
Step8Also search on Google Groups, and BlogSearch to unearth even more results.
Step9.Book Searches.Was your person ever mentioned in a book? A search at Amazon Books and Google Books will look inside the books themselves.
Step10.Jigsaw.comThis site is the best business contacts database in existence. It is a fee-based site, but you can do a preliminary search for free and find out if your person is in the database, and what company they are with.
Step11.Family History:I can only touch on the vast genealogy databases on the web, but for people searching (past and present), it’s hard to beat FamilySearch. The Ellis Island database has millions of records of immigrants to the US in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Cyndi’s List is a huge directory of other ancestry resources.
Step11.Public records.If you know a city or county where your person lives, then public records are another resource. They are too diverse to summarize here, but try a search on: registered voters COUNTY NAME, state.
Hoping all these helps you in your searching for the desired person. n.
