Three Ways To Find Someone
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are thousands of searches daily for people to find someone from their past. These searches consist of looking for friends and acquaintances, family members or old flames from the past. This article will give you some suggestion to finding someone through offline and online means.

First, it would be a good idea to remember and contact people that know or have known the person you are looking for. This may seem obvious, but may not be the solution, only the beginning in finding someone. The people you initially contact may not know where your person is, but may be able to offer other contact information of another individual that may know. Than starts your personal investigation and hopefully successful results. You may have to talk to people you do not know, so it would be a good idea to have a script in your mind or on paper of what to say as an introduction and purpose of your call.

A second method would be to check the social media networks that are very popular on the internet. You would need to sign up for the ones you want to search and try to find someone through their database system. Some people may have one profile or account or they may have many accounts, which would make them easier to locate. However, there is a chance they are using a less known social network and would take longer to track down. Also, you may have friends or relatives that already have profiles on the web. See if they can do a search through their network to try and help you quickly look through many networks. There is power in numbers.

Finally, you may not want others to know you are trying to find someone from your past. You choose to handle the search on your own. You can do other types of searches for people online and there are many options. Most people search engines will give you information such as a phone number, address and a list of known relatives associated with them. So even if the phone number and address are not accurate or current, the list of family members may help in your investigation. Also, you should try more than one people search database to ensure you have uncovered every rock through online means.

It would be good to log all of your information and trails that you have pursued when as you are trying to find someone. That way you will not go down the same path again that had a dead end the first time. Finding someone is sometimes difficult, but will be easier with the right help such as other people in your life or by online options. Good luck in your search.
