If you’re anything like me, you probably wonder whatever happened to old friends from work and school. What happens too often in life is that time passes by and we lose touch with those that have had a positive impact on our lives. But things don’t have to remain like this. If you are currently having thoughts over good times you had and wondering what those people that have been part of these good times are doing today, you should maybe just get them on the phone and see how they are doing.
And while this is sometimes a task easier said than done, there are resources available on the Internet that will help you reconnect with long lost co-workers and friends.
The first step in getting this done is to look through your phone, drawers, and other files to see what information you still retain regarding this people. The second step is to simply open a phone book or use on online phone directory. And you can also use Google to search these people by name. You may find that some of these people have Facebook or MySpace personal pages where you can send them a message to inquire how they are doing.
But if all of these methods fail to reconnect you with your friends or co-workers, you can now easily access a database of personal information that was formerly only available to the police and private investigators. The directories that collect this information do so by buying privately owned information from the original sources.
The reports you will get from such directories reveal the most recent and accurate information that can possibly be obtained regarding a person. There are two ways you can search. If all you know about the person is a name, you can search the database by entering the person’s name into the directory’s website.
The directory will then produce all results that match that name. To narrow the search further, it is advised to enter any other personal information you may know about the person you want to discover more about. Such details include the middle initial or name, approximate age, or old addresses.
Now, if you know the person’s current or old phone number, and would like to search for a current address, you just need to search by entering the phone number into a search tool box provided by the directory.
If the number you have for the person is a landline telephone number that is also publicly listed, your best bet is to perform your search with a public telephone directory. You can obtain a free report that will tell you the telephone owner’s name and current address.
But if you would like a more detailed report or the number you have happens to be a wireless or unlisted number, you will have to perform your search with something other than a public telephone directory. Public phone directories only offer reports for numbers that are publicly listed.
But the directories that collect information from both free and paid resources can help you locate the owner of virtually every type of telephone number. The primary search conducted with such directories are those of wireless users, but if you want to locate the owners of unlisted numbers, listed numbers, fax numbers, or even VoIP telephone numbers, this is the type of directory where answers can be discovered all in one place.
