Finding Lost Loved Ones....

The Internet is a powerful tool for finding lost loved ones. There are many Internet accessible public and private resources that can help locate people through searches of real estate records, business ownership information, genealogical information, government and military records, census data, phone numbers, reverse directories, etc. Often the search is made easier by having certain key pieces of information about the individual, including: full name, date of birth, last address, social security number, drivers/marriage license numbers, previous places of employment, educational institutions attended, state agencies, tax returns, photos, information from relatives, friends and neighbors, etc. Documenting and compiling your research will help you stay organized and be able to communicate your results quickly and concisely to those who can help. Having a birth certificate to prove your own identity is also helpful.

My key advice in your search is to be persistent and creative, follow your intuition and seek the help and advice of others. For example, if an Internet search firm makes an incorrect match based on the information you provided them, ask them to search again, guiding them through the search process, since only you are "intimate" with your collected data and perhaps the general whereabouts of your loved one. By demonstrating persistence and care, others may "bend the rules" to help you. If for any reason someone tells you your search is impossible, move on and seek out those who can and/or will help.

Finally, be emotionally and mentally prepared to know what you will do once you find a loved one. Often many years have passed and emotions, sometimes painful, flow on both sides. You should also be prepared for the possibility that your loved one has passed away.
