I'm trying to find an old friend. Every site I check tries to charge me. Any help would be great.
You pay for those searches. Best you can do is google stalk him yourself and hope you hit pay dirt.
The best advice I can offer is trying Myspace or Facebook or whitepages.com.
Yeah, that's what I was afriad of. I've been trying, but I'm just going around in circles. It just seems that if it's "public record" that I have already paid for it.
Thanks for the advice, but I tried all three. No facebook, no whitepage listing. I did find his myspace page, but it has not been updated in more than two years. It's like he just dropped of the planet.
You can get the public records from their individual agencies. Those websites are not the Public agencies they are services that offer to get the info from those agencies and compile it in a report for you. You aren't paying them for the records you are paying them for the work and research to make your report.
Alright. Got it. Thanks for the information.
I don't know about other states but in Florida it's done county by county and free. So I'de start with county websites in your state.
There are some things that may help you.
First of all, does the person you're looking for own land? If so, most counties will have a record of all land-owners and contact infomation in their tax department or county recorder.
If you know where they went to high school, see if anyone on a reunion committee has any ideas on where they may be, or where their parents are.
