Looking for lost friends

Finding lost friends or even someone you've seen recently but you don't know how to make contact with - an online public records people database is the best way that I know of locating them.

When you sign up at a public records website you'll be able to search millions of public records that have been gathered from many sources to find the person that you're looking for. There is a small fee to pay but this has to be the fastest, most convenient and possibly the most certain way that your search for lost friends will succeed.

When you've located your old friend you'll be surprised at the amount of information you'll be able to get on them. You'll be able to search birth records, marriage records, criminal records, death records and a whole lot more. You can even find an email address for a lost friend from these databases.

Locating lost friends for free

The fees for public records databases are very reasonable but if you want to try finding someone for free then this is where you should start:

1. Google your friend

Go to and type in the name of your friend into the search box then click the button. If the person that you're looking for has any kind of presence online then you might get lucky and find a link to their web site or social network profile.

2. Search the social networks

Search for your lost friends on some of the more popular social networking web sites. Start with Facebook and MySpace. You would be surprised to learn just how many people are registered on one of these 2 networks.

3. Put a trace for your friend on the Internet

Go to and place a trace entry on the site. This entry will say who you are and who you're looking for and after a period of time there is a good chance that this entry will appear in the search engine results when someone searches for your friend online. This is a slow method of finding someone because you are relying on someone with knowledge of your friend coming across your entry on the Internet. It's worth a try - you might get lucky.

How do I find a long lost friend as quickly as possible
