Secrets To Locate A Person Internet Style

Have you ever wondered what the old boyfriend or girlfriend is up to? Or tried to find your long lost best friend from grade school? Or, maybe you are trying to find out if your new boyfriend or girlfriend has a shady past. Well, don’t feel alone. With the Internet, people are finding it easier to find out things about persons that were once in their life, or are new to their life.

There are several ways to locate a person online. I’m sure you have heard people talk about “google-ing” somebody. This sounds a little easier than it is, and often will bring up information on people who have had a similar name or part of the name in the last century. I suppose if you have enough free time on your hands, and don’t give up reading all the information you can find on these people before you fall asleep, you might have some success this way.

There are certain ways that make it easier to “google” somebody, such as putting quotation marks around their name. Sometimes, this will narrow down the possibilities to items that only have the complete phrase in content instead of parts.

You can also search public records of the last known locality the person was in, and many larger counties or municipalities offer this information for free. This might bring up public records such as marriage and divorce licenses or real estate transactions. Sometimes, these can help you locate the person you are after.

There are also ancestry types of websites that might list possible relatives of the name of the person you are looking for. Some people might be looking for the owner of a phone number that keeps coming up on caller ID and they don’t recognize. There are many different ways to look up people now on the Internet.

locate a person for free

  • locate a person by phone
  • locate a person by social security number
  • locate a person and run a background check

What I have found to be the easiest way is to get the pertinent information that you have and use a paid search service. These services are worth the time and small amount they charge and often have resources beyond what the normal person can find by “google-ing” by name, phone number or address.

Granted, you can have some success by looking up people by phone, name or last known address. But other people may be harder to find. There are reunion websites, criminal background check websites, credit rating websites and public record websites that you may be able to utilize for basic information.

For more detailed information, you may need to pay a small fee to cover part of their investigations, but you can often locate the person you are looking for. Some of these people locator websites will give you free access to the basic report if you are a registered member. While these allow you to pay for more advanced reports, you can often easily find the information that you need to get back in touch with a long lost loved one.

One of the best sites I have found is locate a person. You should try it the next time you are curious about someone from your past or a new person in your present or future.

    Is there a way to locate someone locally to try this?

    Try these, and you can also contact the local police if you have evidence of foul play… always keep anything that can be used as evidence… hope this helps!
