Frequently Asked Questions Searching

What should I do if I haven't found the person I'm seeking?

Your first step might be to verify the information you’ve gotten. For example, double check the spelling of a person’s last name or date of birth. The more accurate details you provide, the better your results will be.

In some cases, you may need more information to find a person, or to come at a search in non-direct ways. If possible, ask a mutual friend if they have an old address or phone number for the person you’re trying to locate. You could also run a People Search on a relative of the person you hope to find. They may be able to provide additional information.

If you plan to run multiple searches, you can start a PeopleFinders Membership, which gives you full access to reports.
