Finding biological parents the easy way using online public records

Trace someone now

Do you want to find your real parents? Are you curious about where you came from, who your parents are and why they gave you up for adoption? If you’ve never known your biological parents then it’s only human nature that sooner or later you’ll start to wonder why it is that they left you. You may not want to meet them, especially when you find out what the’re like but I bet that you would like to know something about them even if you do it secretly.

Before the Internet and the availability of public records online the only way to find someone was either to spend a lot of time making enquiries in the places where you think the person may have resided or to spend money on a private detective who would do the work for you. The first option often meant a lot of traveling to follow up leads that you find. The second option is expensive and enough to make most people think twice about finding their lost parents.

Start searching for your birth parents by looking yourself up

You have to start somewhere and you aren’t going to get far unless you know the names of your parents and have at least an idea of where they lived when you were born. This information should be on your birth certificate but if you were adopted then you might not possess a copy. If you don’t have your real parents details then go online and look up information on yourself. You should be able to find the information that you need amongst the public birth records.

Armed with the information about your parents from your birth record you can now search for their details using the same online database. If you know their names and where they used to live you should be able to find out where they are located now.

And there’s more. When you start finding information on your parents you can find out much more than simply where they live. You can find telephone numbers, criminal records, marriage records, arrest records and all sorts of things that you never imagined.

Tracing birth parents confidentially so that you decide if you want to contact them or not

You might have a burning desire to get in touch with your real parents or you might just be curious to know who they are and what they’ve been doing. You might not know yourself whether you want to contact them at this time. Either way there’s no harm in doing the searches and tracing your biological parents and possibly the rest of your real family because it’s all done with 100% confidentiality.

When you have the information you can decide what you are going to do with it. You can pick the phone up and call them or you can quietly ignore it and get on with your own life.

Using an online public records database to find people doesn’t work for everyone, some people just can’t be found, but it is the best and certainly the easiest way to search for someone by a long way. If you are even thinking about the parents that you’ve lost then you owe it to yourself to give this a try. You might get a very pleasant surprise and you don’t have anything to lose.

How to find out if someone is in jail or in federal prison?

Click to find someone in jail

A few years ago it might have been a near impossible task to find someone who was in federal prison unless you had a good idea of where they were before you began. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I had need to find someone recently. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and you can get a lot of the information for free. If you can’t find them using free methods or you want to dig a bit deeper into the persons background or criminal record then this is easy to do too if you don’t mind paying the small fee involved. I found that it was more than worth it for the wealth of information that I found out.

Step 1: Try the BOP Federal Inmate Lookup and State Corrections Departments search

If the person you are looking for is in a federal prison then you should be able to look them up on the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) web site. at The site provides a searchable inmates listing which isn’t too difficult to use. It claims to list all federal inmates since 1982.

To use the free inmate locator type in the details of the person that you’re looking for and click the button to see an inmates listing together with the names of the prisons where each person is being held. If they’re still being held in prison the list will also give you a link to the facilities web site. When you do this the site might give you a long list of inmates unless the person you’re searching for has a particularly unusual name. If you get a long list then you need to somehow filter the list to find which one, if any, of the inmates is the person that you are looking for. This can be harder than it sounds.

If you don’t find the person that you are looking for on the federal BOP site it might be that they are being held in a State Correction facility and not a federal one. If this is the case then you can search for them up on the web site. The problem is that you either have to know exactly where they might be held or you have to do a search on about 37 different web sites. This is possible but it might take you some time. Also not all the correctional facilities publish their records online.

Step 2: Fine tune your search by getting some background information

When you’ve done your searches on the free sites above and you’ve filtered your results by sex, race and age you might still be left with several names on the inmates listing and you’re not sure which one of them, if any of them at all, is the person that you’re looking for. If this happens then you need to get more background information on them.

If you are lucky then you won’t need to look any further than the BOP and state web sites. They are free to use and you may well find exactly what you are looking for. If you don’t find the person that you are looking for or you want to get a background check on them to find out more about their criminal record or other information then you can use a public records web site to find what you need. This web site uses public records from all over the country and gives you easy access to them. Not only will it make it easier for you to find someone in prison, it will also give you access to as much information on them that you could want.

Government Death Records Database | How To Find A Dead Person

Monday, December 7th, 2009

How do I find out if someone is living or dead?

Click to search death records

Are you thinking about people that you used to know but have lost touch with over the years? As you get older you’ll most likely find that this starts to happen more and more often, I know that it has to me.

You can probably think of a good many people that you used to know from school and college, from places where you used to work and neighbors from places where you used to live. Do you look back on some very good times that you had with many good friends but somehow you’ve lost touch with all of them?

So where are they now? How do you get in touch with them again and most importantly – Are they still living or are they deceased? The sad fact of life is that some of the people that you haven’t heard from in a long time might be dead and you should prepare yourself for this possibility.

How to find dead relatives

Finding relatives should be a simple matter if you can still find at least some of your family. I know that even this can get tough because families can get separated and lose touch almost as easily as old friends can. If you know where they are then get in touch with them and ask them about the relative you want to find. If you didn’t know that they were dead then you should find out by this method soon enough because they will tell you.

Sometimes even relatives become elusive and no one can tell you where they are or what has happened to them. So what do you do then? This is where you start hunting through marriage and death records and obituaries to find pieces of information that might give you a clue to where they are now.

How to access government death records to find dead people

Government records offices are invaluable sources of information when you are trying to trace someone but they only keep a small part of the information that you might need in one place. If you happen to know where they lived, where they got married or where they died then you could go straight to the records offices in those areas and you’ll have a good chance of finding the clues you’re after.

But what if you don’t have any of this information before you start, where do you go then? You can’t check them all because it would take you forever. Don’t give up yet though because there is a way to search through all of this information in one go without having to apply in every records office in every state.

How to find a dead person using online public records databases

There is a popular need to find public records information from all over and this need is being catered to by web sites that specialize in gathering records from thousands of different sources and making them available to you in one big easily searchable database. You will be amazed what you can find out about people in these databases and death records are no exception.

If the person that you are searching for is alive then you could find out where they live, their phone numbers and you could even do a background check on them. If they have died then you have a good chance of finding their obituary and details of their death. The amazing thing is that you can do all of this in less than 10 minutes from your home. Find out if someone is dead or alive now and avoid making embarrassing phone calls or writing greetings cards to someone who is no longer with us.

Can I Find A Person By Using Name Only? Its Fun Finding People

Friday, November 6th, 2009

You can find people on the Internet and it’s easier than you think

Find a person online now

It could be someone that you used to know well but you haven’t been in contact with them for a long time. It might be someone who you met some time ago and would like to meet up with them again. Perhaps it’s someone who you’ve just met and you want to find out something about them even if it’s just to check out their story. Can I find a person by using name only? Yes, in many cases you can do exactly that. I’ve discovered a system that not many people know about and I’m going to show you how you can use it to find people and have fun doing it.

The secret to locating people on the Internet

The secret of finding people is having access to information – lots of information from everywhere and as much of it as you can get. Where can you get this information? In free public records that’s where. Names, addresses, marriage records, birth records, death records, criminal records, arrest records. All this kind of information and a lot more is stored in public records freely accessible to you.

Now you can’t expect to find absolutely everything about anyone. Nevertheless I have been able to locate several old friends of mine and found out a lot of interesting information about them.

Using a public records web site to search through billions of records

Now you might think that if all the information that you need is stored in some public database somewhere then you can just go and look up what you want for free. This is true but the information is kept in literally thousands of different places all over the country. How can you possibly hope to find what you need even if it’s free to look. You have to know where to look first.

Luckily you are not the only one to have this problem. In fact the demand for this kind of information is so great that web sites have been dedicated to solving your problem. You can now use a web site that gathers together all of this publicly available information and makes it available to you in a simple and easy to use web site.

Finding someone by doing unlimited background checks

This is great news isn’t it? All you need to do is find one of these public records web sites and start searching. This is true but you might also want to consider the cost of doing this. Most of the public record database sites that I’ve seen charge you for every search that you do. They do provide some free searches but I find that you usually end up needing the paid ones.

When you are trying to find someone you can end up doing a lot of searches, especially if you are tying to find a person by using name only. If you have to pay for each search then it can get very expensive. The secret is to use a web site where all your searches are free.

Finding information about people can be intoxicating and a lot of fun

I’ve discovered a web site that allows you do do an unlimited number of searches and background checks for free. All you pay is a small membership fee and you can search for as many people as you want. This is very exciting because finding people and background information on them, their relatives and their neighbors can be a lot of fun when all your searches are free. Give it a try today but be careful, you might get hooked like I am. The web site I used is here – Unlimited background checks

Can I Find A Person By Name Only? Find A Person Online Like I Did

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I found an old friend online and all I had was a name

Find someone online now

How many times have you wished that you could just go online, type in someone’s name and out pops the answer to where they live? Can I find a person by name only? Yes it’s possible and I’ve done it and I’m going to tell you how I did it.

It might surprise you to learn that it’s now possible for you to go online and find most people that you look for, even if you only have their name to go on. Yes I didn’t believe it at first either but I found a web site that looked very promising. This site allows you to do an unlimited number of background searches using as many names as you want to and it doesn’t cost you any more than your entry fee. When you can do as many searches as you want to in a database containing more than a billion public records you can find out a lot of information.

I wanted to find an old friend

I had a friend who was very close to me but we had not been in touch with each other for years. Why not? I’ve no idea – it just happened. I had a feeling that they had moved so all I had to go on to find this person was a name. I wasn’t even sure which state they were in. Anyway this public records web site offers a good money back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied with the service so I thought that I would give it a try. After all, what did I have to lose?

The site is clean, fast and easy to manage and I soon had a list of potentials on my screen from doing a background search for the persons name. After I had reduced the list by rejecting anyone older or younger than I thought my friend was and by guessing the states that they might be living in I was down to a manageable list of possible matches.

Find a person using background checks

One by one I pulled up detailed background information on all of the short list and if there was a phone number I called it. My plan was to call everyone with a listed telephone number then write to the rest. I didn’t need to write any letters at all, as it turns out, because I found my friend in what seemed like no time at all.

Can I find a person by name only? Well I did as you can see and I’ve found several more people since that first time. I haven’t yet found absolutely everyone that I’ve looked for and some take a bit more work than others but if I can do it then so can you. Start searching for people now.

How To Locate People: Find Someone On The Internet Right Now Not Tomorrow

Don’t put it off – Locate lost friends today before it’s too late

Look up people in public records

It’s all too easy for you to breeze through life putting things off instead of taking action right now. I know because I’m one of those people who would rather take it easy than take the time to do the things that I know I should. If you have old friends or relatives that you’ve lost contact with then don’t be one of those people, find someone on the Internet today and stop putting things off until tomorrow.

It sometimes takes a dramatic event to give you the wake up call that you need to get motivated to do the important things in life. The best example of this that I can give you is my daughter who was conceived just a few days after my father died. We had been planning it for months but never wanted to do it at the time. We were putting it off until… well I don’t know what we were putting it off for. When my father left us at a relatively young age it reminded us of how fragile life is and how we should be living for today and not for tomorrow. Just in case tomorrow doesn’t go as planned.

A wake up call for all the world

Events like a death in the family usually affect a few people and even fewer take up the wake up call and go for action. Sometimes an event will affect millions of people across the world all at the same time. For instance, when a well known celebrity dies before their time. When Elvis died early it literally changed the lives of millions of people on the planet. More recently the untimely deaths of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. I know that they’ve made me stop and think about what I do and what I don’t do and I expect it’s had a similar effect on many other people.

These celebrity deaths caused a huge spike of traffic on the Internet which almost brought down some of the biggest servers. Were all of these extra people on the Internet searching for information about their idols? I think that the majority were doing just that but I also think that there were many who had just realized that anyone can die at any time and if they don’t find those long lost friends now then it could be too late. Some of these people were using the Internet to search for information and locate people.

How to locate people and find someone using the Internet

locating people has never been as easy as it is today. By taking advantage of the information now available to you on the Internet it’s possible to track down almost anyone. Some people can be found very quickly and some will need you to do a little detective work. Even the detective work is now easy when you can do an unlimited number of searches whenever you want to.

How To Find People And Birthdays

Find people and birthdays using the awesome power of the Internet

Find Someone now

Have you lost touch with your high school and college friends like I have? Most of us do it seems and such a shame it is too. I bet that there are plenty of people that you promised faithfully that you would keep in touch with but you haven’t. As the years go by you come to regret that you didn’t live up to your promise but don’t give up yet, there are ways of finding people that might amaze you.

Birthdays are forgotten too easily

Birthdays are also easily forgotten, even when they are your best of friends or even close family. I’m terrible at remembering this kind of thing and it isn’t helped by the fact that a lot of people would like you to think that they are younger than they really are. Asking them is embarrassing because it might show that you’ve forgotten it or because they would rather not tell you. Don’t worry though, there is now a solution to this too.

Time might be a healer but it has a lot to answer for

When I left university 30 years ago I was part of a very close group of friends. We all promised each other and ourselves that we would stay in touch no matter what happened even though we were all going off to start our working lives in different parts of the country.

For a while most of us managed to call and write to each other every now and then. There was no email or messenger or Internet back then. The time between calls got longer and longer as we all got into our new lives and after a few short years we practically lost touch altogether.

The sad thing about all of this is that I lost touch with one of my best friends from university and we were both living in the same town. Would you believe it? 10 years ago he died and I had seen him perhaps only a handful of times in the previous 10 years. We contacted everyone we could find from the old days to find a handful of people to attend the funeral. I hadn’t seen some of these old friends of mine for 20 years and sadly I haven’t seen them since.

It’s never been easier to find people and birthdays. Don’t lose touch

A lot has happened in the last few years and it’s now possible to use the Internet to search online public records databases from the comfort of your own home quickly, easily and with complete discretion. You can use databases that used to be accessible only by the law enforcement agencies for finding missing persons. Now you can do the same searches to find practically anyone you want.

There really is no excuse for losing touch with people when it’s so easy to find them. Do it now, you’ll regret it if you don’t.

Find out practically anything about almost anyone. Find lost or missing persons quickly.

How Do I Get A Cell Phone Number By Name

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Locating cell phone numbers without a phone book

Locate a cell phone number now

I’m old enough to remember the time before cell phones, or mobile phones as they’re called in the UK, became a reality. Telephones without wires that you could take with you wherever you went were science fiction. We all watched James Bond and other hi-tech movies that showed agents with suitcase sized telephones and never in a million years did we every think that we would all be carrying one in our pockets one day.

In those days we were safe in the knowledge that we could find out anyone’s phone number by looking in the phone book. Everyone had a phone in their home and everyone’s number was listed, unless you had it excluded from of the book and became ex-directory. There was no way to contact someone when they weren’t at home. My daughter has no idea how life was even possible in those days.

Everyone has a cell phone in their pocket

Now that everyone has a cell phone and there is no equivalent of the telephone book listing of landlines, how do you get a cell phone number from someone’s name? You can’t just look it up in a phone book because there is no one big book of cell phone numbers and you can’t do a Google search for it because a search engine can only give you a result if the phone number has been placed on a web page by the target of your search. This is very unlikely because most people think that putting their phone number on the Internet is a risky thing to do and I would agree with them.

Help is on hand to find out information about anyone you want

There are online directories like the one in the link at the end of this article that have gathered together information from a multitude of public access databases and other sources of information. These directories make it easy for you search for all sorts of information on people including their cell phone numbers in many cases. Next to asking the person what their number is, this is the best chance that you’ve got of finding their cell phone number.
