Saturday, September 19, 2009 Learn How To Locate Anyone Using The Web At some point in everyone's life you start to wonder about ex- boyfriends or girlfriends that are from your past. Whether they're someone you once dated or even siblings, it is occasionally difficult to know how to even begin a successful search. You could dedicate hours or even days hoping to find someone through former places of employment, their old schools or the military, but at each step you will have to make multiple phone calls, not to mention having to submit detailed requests in written form, and deal with endless departments and red-tape. There are many obstacles in locating old acquaintances including the possibility that they could have gotten married and changed their name. This can make finding someone you haven't seen in awhile daunting. Before the internet became widespread there were very few options worth the effort to pursue. Searching for old friends became a massive challenge involving countless man-hours lost talking to people or an expensive endeavor when you were forced to pay for a private investigator to do the search for you. Nowadays though the search is pretty easily done by using the internet. Before you even fire up a browser what you will want to do is spend Twitter Updates Subscribe To Links Find Someone Online Top Tips To Find Old Friends Online Find Anyone Online For Free Local-Whitepages Blog Archive ▼  2009 (1) ▼  September (1) Learn How To Locate Anyone Using The Web Comments Posts http://howtofindsomeoneonline.blogspot.com/2009/09/learn-how-to-locate-anyone-using-web.html
  • 2. a couple of minutes thinking about the person you're trying to get back in touch with. Take into account any details you can remember about their personality, such as nicknames, favorite sayings, maybe even try to remember a middle initial or where they grew up. If you know when they were born this will also aid you on your search. You need to try to remember any unique aspects of their personality, likes, dislikes and/or quirks about the person. For the next step you're going to want to open up whatever web browser is on your computer and surf over to google.com. Try looking for their full name, nicknames and any variation of their name that they would go by back when they weren't lost. In addition to that try adding the names of places they may have lived or worked along with their name as that occasionally will help increase the results. If you're not finding any luck with those searches type in an old email address that they once had without the domain name into the search engine. It is common for people to keep the same mail accounts used for accessing email, even if they've switched providers/carriers. If you find multiple people with the same name, try clicking on the links and see if anything looks familiar. Sometimes people bring their personality with them online, even if they try not to. If you think that they're the type who'd have some sort of online profile at any of the numerous social networking sites like Myspace or Facebook then you'd want to visit yoName (www.yoname.com), a free search engine that polls a vast number of the big sites for profiles that resemble whatever information you give about the missing person (whether email address, full name or otherwise). For people with popular first and/or last names this may require a small amount of time on your part to check out all of the results, but it's very well well organized and will typically include any photos available along with the search terms to help aid you in going through the results. If you have an old cell phone number (or even landline) of theirs you can try performing a reverse cell-phone lookup. The Social Security Death Index is a database of all deaths reported to the Social Security Administration since 1962, when death records were finally entered into a computerized database. Keep in mind though that the absence of any specific death record does not necessarily mean the lost friend is still alive. A lot of newspapers will also let you search their obituary sections online to see if your missing person may have shown up there. If you suspect they may have joined any type of licensed or certified profession (like doctors, lawyers or accountants) you can try
  • 3. searching the records of local trade organizations. Most people have at least one hobby or special interest and this can be a big help to you on your search. For example, if the person you're looking for plays the banjo, search through the online listings for local bluegrass or country shows. This may lead to you coming across the person's name, photo, the name of the band if they're in one and hopefully even a venue where they are scheduled to appear. You never know, if the person has always wanted to become a teacher or loves soccer, there are millions of other possibilities. If you still aren't finding any information on your lost friend, I hate to mention it but you may find yourself needing to look at Inmate Search (www.thempamperedprisoner.com). The site is pretty old but it hosts a list of contact information for each state system for finding inmates. Not only that but it also has links to search through the listings of federal prisoners. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of options for searching all the states at the same time so knowing the state in which they'd be most likely incarcerated helps speed up the process. If you still can't find anything there are plenty of pay-services on the web that will do the search for you. You can typically find these agencies pretty easily on portals like Google. If you decide to pay a missing friend service to look for the person you want to find, make sure to go through any fine print before sending in any credit card information. You need to be positive they are a legitimate company before giving anyone personal information. Using these tips can help reunite you with lost friends and loved ones. It's remarkable what (and in this case, who) you can find on the web these days. To learn more information on searching for people online please visit thelocal-whitepages.
