What to do when you are looking to contact an old friend, lost love, a chat buddy, or someone else...
- free search
- paid search
- assisted search
- social networking
But, if you've been through all these options and you've still had no success, here are four tips to help you find out someone’s email address:
1. Take the time to assemble what you know of the person: their first name, middle name, last name, state, country, and any other information you may have. Often you will discover that there are pointers in what you know that will lead you to other sources of information. For example, if you know that they play a particular sport then it may lead you to a sporting association. If you know where they went to school or where they work, try their workplace friends or local social clubs. And don't forget to examine any previous correspondence that you may have archived!
2. Try entering their name and details in a search engine, and be sure to try several combinations of their personal details: the persons first, middle, last names, state, country, etc.
Search examples :
a. David John Doe Atlanta - will return pages with any combination of one or more of these four words
b. "David John Doe" - will return any pages which have the exact phrase of 'David John Doe'
c. "David John Doe" + Atlanta - will return any pages which have the exact phrase of 'David John Doe', and with Atlanta
3. Ensure that you have tried these people and email address search websites :
Or, to find a person through military, college or professional affiliations try these websites :
http://www.militaryconnections.com - for military personnel
http://www.facebook.com - finding college students.
http://www.myspace.com - social online network
http://www.friendster.com - very popular in asia/south east asia.
Or find them by the high school attended :
4. Get some help! If you are happy to pay for help or if you are in a big hurry you can consider using a private investigator. However, be aware that some companies provide a very low level of service and some charge high fees for searches - up to $200 per eMail address search. Alternatively, you can try on-line collaborative services like soc.net-people where you can ask for help in locating someone.
