International Day of the Disappeared

Monday, August 27th, 2012

It seems as if with all of the available technology, finding someone would be easy. Doing a quick people search can help you find relatives, old classmates or friends. There are cases, however, when it seems as if loved ones fall off the face of the Earth and there is no hope of finding them.

What Is The International Day Of The Disappeared?

The International Day of the Disappeared was started with the hope of finding those lost in war, conflict, violence or no known cause. The hope is to bring together families and loved ones torn apart from life’s most unusual events. In many cases, those missing are military personnel, though they may also be civilian victims of the war as well. This annual day of remembrance held on August 30th highlights the struggles of loved ones, and recognizes the importance of finding and bringing home the missing. Volunteers and others devoted to the cause have made it a point to offer services in many countries of the world.

Thank you for visiting.

Elvis may have said it best. The soulful crooner lamented that he would have a blue Christmas without you. Okay, maybe he wasn’t talking about you in particular. Point is, even Elvis needed his loved ones around to be merry.

Are you missing anyone this holiday season?

There are so many things associated with the holidays. Family events, shopping, social gatherings and vicious scams perpetrated by heartless criminals. It’s tragic. Voracious predators recognize this season as a time of cheer and good will. And they’ll use every dirty trick at their disposal to take advantage of that.

Happy New Year!

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

2010It’s been an incredible year for all of us at PeopleFinders, and we hope 2009 was a prosperous and joyful time for you. A lot has happened since we launched this blog on May 29, 2009.

We’ve seen so many amazing events unfold over the year. We shared a collective feeling of bereavement at the loss of celebrities like Michael Jackson, Farah Fawcett and Patrick Swayze.  These beloved entertainers brought so much joy into our lives, and their unfortunate passing reminds of us how important it is to hold the people that we care about close. We are constantly reminded of just how unpredictable life can be.

Happy Holidays From PeopleFinders

Monday, December 14th, 2009

logoDecember is filled with reasons to celebrate; from the well-know holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa to the more unusual events like Oatmeal Muffin Day and Wear A Plunger On Your Head Day (we’re not 100% sure what that one is all about, but to each his own). Everywhere you look you see lights, decorations and people out shopping for gifts that they hope will bring joy to their friends and family members.

During the holiday season people devote a little more time to simply being with relatives and friends, something we encourage all year long! To help get into the holiday spirit we thought we’d mention a few of the lesser-known reasons to celebrate this December:
