Searching for a Relative? A People Search Service Will Help You

by Linda Hudson Manager

There are many cases where people lose touch with their relatives or discover that they have family members they knew nothing about. If you fall into one of these categories and you want to find relatives, you can now do it more easily than ever. A people search is the way to go when searching for relatives, and this is what you need to know about it.

How to find relatives?

Before you begin an online people search, there are some things that you need to do:

Gather as many facts as you can

Any search, even a professional people search with a PI has to start from somewhere. If you want to find family members, you need to gather as much information about them as you can: names of other relatives, old contact information, maiden names, and any other detail. It will help you with your search.

Try a social media search

Social media has been bringing people together for nearly two decades. If you need to find a member of your family, try social media, first. Nowadays, these websites are less broad than they used to be; to find a particular person, you can type in their name on Facebook, for instance, and use filters. You can use location, vocation, and other filters that will help you narrow down your search.

Speak to friends and relatives

If you happen to find friends or relatives of the person that you are looking for – try asking them for information. They can help you get in touch with the relative/s that you are trying to find, and connect you.

Use a people search engine

The most credible and fast way to find people is with a professional people search service, like GoLookUp. This website is host to public records queries, which are official records that are collected by official agencies. Public records include a great deal of information about people, including:

  • Birth records
  • Marriage records
  • Contact information
  • Divorce records
  • Death records

And more

To use this service, you need to enter two details into the directory: the state in which the relative lives/used to live and their full name. The search on GoLookUp begins as soon as the directory has this information. The queries on the website are based on public records, and each search takes several minutes or less to complete. In the end, you will receive a detailed report that includes the contact information of the said relative, and additional information.

What if the search fails?

Sometimes, a name-based search doesn’t yield the results that you need. In cases where people have the same name, changed their name or in case you do not know how to spell a name – you could come up empty. In that case, you can use other directories that are available on GoLookUp:

  • Reverse phone number search
  • Reverse address search
  • Reverse email search

If you have the old contact information of the relative that you are looking for, you can use it to perform a people search and get in touch with your relatives.
