Most people have heard of a People Search, but not everyone knows exactly how they work. People Searches allow you to find most anyone in the United States, and at PeopleFinders.com we are dedicated to giving you a variety of ways to find long lost family and friends.
People Search By Name
The most common way to find people online is to do a Search by Name. This type of People Search lets you enter a first and last name, and the person’s most recent city and state if you know it. You can use a last name only, but providing more information will improve your results. Fill in the details you’re sure of, click the Search button and you’ll be shown a list of up to 100 people that match your criteria. Don’t worry if you’re not sure which one is the right person, you can order a report that includes information on all of them.
Other People Search Options
You may not remember the name of the person you hope to find, so we have other options to help. One way is to use an old address. Enter as much information as you can, including the zip code if possible, and you’ll get a list of all the people who lived at that residence. Seeing the names may jog your memory and help you locate the person you’re looking for. Another option is to search using an outdated phone number. You’ll see everyone who is associated with that number, so you can find the right person even if they haven’t used those digits in years.
An Email Search shows you how to contact someone online. You can find anyone’s Email using their name or address, or use an Email address to find more information about the owner. One of the most definitive ways to find people is with a Social Security Number. Every SSN is unique to one individual, so if you have that number you can find the exact person you want immediately.
Find Someone Using A Maiden Name
It’s easy to lose touch with someone, especially if they get married, change their name or move away. Finding a woman when all you have is her maiden name can be difficult, but with some patience and persistence you can use PeopleFinders.com to find anyone.
Start with an Advanced People Search and enter a maiden name and any other details you know for the best results. Depending on how common the name is, you’ll get a list of 1 to 100 people and you can request a single report for all of them. Look for an address you recognize, and if none of them seem familiar do an Address Search on each one to see all the people who resided there. Once you find the woman you’re searching for, you’ll get her married name and you can order a People Search or Comprehensive Background Report to find out how to contact her today.
