Connecting with Previous Colleagues

Do you have fond memories of previous colleagues with whom you wish you could get back in contact? Many people use email to communicate with colleagues on a business level. If you were particularly close with someone, you may have talked via personal email addresses.

Regardless of which one you have available, it's possible to get in contact on a personal level again, even if the person no longer works at that company or doesn't have access to the email address. Just perform an email lookup. Not only will you get direct contact information such as phone numbers, but the username lookup may also provide an easier way to talk to that person again.

Remembering Old Contacts

If you used to be in regular contact with someone over email, you might find yourself missing that relationship. Depending upon how long you've had a specific email address, you might have talked with someone over a decade ago, but still think about that person. If it's been that long, it's entirely possible that someone would have moved on from the email address. The email may have even been hosted on a service that doesn't exist anymore.

Just perform an email lookup using that email address. You can find a newer form of communication that will let you get back in contact with this person. Social media accounts that you find through the username lookup may also be a good way to start talking again.

Finding Family Members

If you have estranged or distant family members, you may want to reconnect. There are many ways to build a family tree, but PeopleFinders is especially useful for that. You can find family members and get in contact by looking someone up and using PeopleFinders' option to see possible relatives for that individual.

You can use the email address to perform an email lookup. Go through the other PeopleFinders options to get back in touch with distant or estranged family members. It can be a useful way to rebuild.

How Do I Perform an Email Search?

It's incredibly easy to perform an email lookup at PeopleFinders. With just a few simple steps, you can locate someone quickly based only on an email address that you have available. Here's how to do it.

Comb Your Email History

First, you need to have the email address that you want to use. However, if you don't already have it, you can look through your email history to find it. Most email providers have incredibly powerful search engines built in that can help you find the email address with no problem.

If you're having a tough time, consider using a few of these search terms. First off, try the person's first and last name, both individually and together. To find a colleague's email address, use the name of the company where you both worked. For a family member, try the word that corresponds to your familial relation, such as "aunt" or "nephew."

Enter the Email Address

Once you have the email address for the person you're looking for, it's incredibly easy to perform the email lookup. Just enter the email address in the search bar on this page. Click "Search" so that PeopleFinders can look through its records for millions of American adults and find the person you're looking for.

Check to Make Sure You Have the Right Person

Although PeopleFinders is an incredibly powerful tool, you should always make sure that you're looking at the right records before you proceed. This is especially important when you're performing a people search because you'll often get multiple records that may match your criteria, but it's also a good idea to pay attention to your email lookup.

Match the data that PeopleFinders presents with the information that you already have about the person, such as first and last name and previous addresses. If it matches up, you're all clear. Use the information from the email and username lookup to get back in touch. If you're not sure whether it's the same person, first check to make sure that you're using the right email address. Then, make sure you copied the address over correctly, as even a single missed key can change the results entirely.

If PeopleFinders doesn't have results on the email address you entered, try performing a people search, which can help you cast a wider net while still maintaining the efficiency of an email lookup.
