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.

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.

Schools in the 1950’s, like most other public locations, were segregated in Georgia. Kids were forced to attend different schools depending on the color of their skin, and those with white skin were further separated by gender. Fifty years later these people who were not allowed to associate with each other were finally able to connect.

older_sistersTheir stories are worth celebrating. People everywhere are reuniting with family and friends they haven’t seen in years, and it’s all thanks to modern technology that helps bring us together. At we’re always excited to hear about people who were able to find each other again after so much time had passed.

Take the tale of two sisters who were separated at a very young age and spent nearly 5 decades apart. One was so young when it happened that she didn’t even remember having a sibling, but after their reunion the pair immediately established a strong sisterly bond. Just goes to show that the passing of time is nothing compared to the power of emotion.
