Jeri is a people finding sleuth who goes by the nickname “Sherlock”. She has utilized The PeopleFinders Network to find hundreds of people, and was kind enough to share a few of her success stories with us. One of our favorites is about a woman named Laurie…

Laurie was separated from her mother as an infant in the 1940’s. She would never see her mother again.

Years later, Laurie hoped to find her family, but only had a few clues: her mother’s name (which was very common), the name of her mother’s husband (Bruno Vernazza) and the fact that her mother had a sister named Peggy. After some intense investigating, Laurie found an address for Bruno, but it was not current, and the trail dried up.


Thank You For Reminding Us … Part 1

reunionphotoEntrepreneurs start new businesses for a variety of reasons. Some people may feel that the only goal of any company is to make money, but while that is important (at least if you want to keep the business alive), it is not the only motive.

Developing a business involves an incalculable amount of time, work and effort. It is not a venture that is entered into lightly; the desire to found a company stems from the pursuit of a dream and the need to carve your own niche in this world.


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.

The Hottest Tech Trend of 2010

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

monitor3In 2009 people from every demographic seemed to become more tech-savvy than ever before. When the year began, technology like smart phones, apps, Facebook and Twitter existed, but they didn’t have the widespread acceptance and loyalty they currently enjoy. People of all ages and walks of life have become fascinated with these high-tech websites and gadgets.

Throughout the year millions of people created social networking accounts that allowed them to communicate with friends, family and complete strangers; purchased phones that were just as powerful as their computers and laptops; and downloaded apps that gave them the ability to do almost anything. One of the biggest buzz terms of 2009 was “real time” – people were suddenly able to learn all about anything, while it was actually happening.


Who Intrigues You?

Friday, December 18th, 2009

People CoverOn Friday, December 18, People magazine releases their “25 Most Intriguing of 2009” issue. The list of 25 celebrities and newsmakers that People believes made the biggest impact this year is topped by Taylor Swift, the young musician who made a major splash at the Grammys this year.

People’s list contains more than 25 intriguing individuals – some people were listed as couples (like Barack and Michelle Obama), and others were clumped into larger groups (like the Kardashian sisters). Every winner was given their own title, such as “The Power Pair” for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, or “The Departing Diva” for Oprah Winfrey.

Finding Public Records Isn’t Always Easy.

Collecting public records on your own is difficult. We can help.

Collecting public records on your own is difficult. We can help.

We live in the information age, a time when people are able to get almost any type of data they want from thousands of sources. This wealth of information has generated a new challenge: finding data that is complete, accurate and reliable.

Many companies sell public records, but they are often accused of providing inaccurate, incomplete or outdated information. These companies don’t always own the data they sell, and sometimes utilize a “bait and switch” tactic to get people to purchase multiple reports. They do this by displaying a teaser that indicates a lot of information is available, but when a customer purchases a report they discover that they must buy several more to get all the details. This leaves people with two choices: order reports from a public records company and hope for the best, or try to find the information they need on their own.

Anyone who watches the news at all can tell you; it’s been rough recently. Scandals, assaults, shootings – there’s just no way to make sense of it all.

Riding The Google Wave

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

wavelogoPeople have been talking about Google Wave for a while now, even though only a small percentage of the population has actually seen it. One big question remains – will Google Wave change the way people communicate online?

Google Wave is poised to be an exciting new way to interact with other people. It’s said to be a combination of email, instant messenger, Wikipedia and social networking – and it all goes on in real time. Most people will have to try Google Wave for a while to completely understand what it does, but you can get the basic idea before it’s released to the general public. To start, think of Google Wave as an extension of your inbox…
