Finding People

Lost someone? We know a quick and easy way to find him -- the Internet. Below you'll find a short list of some of the best resources for finding people. Also, be sure to check out PeopleSpot.com, a StartSpot site that features great people-finding tools and resources.

Family

Whether you're looking for a long-lost cousin, searching for your birth mom or researching your family tree, these sites are a great place to start.

  • YourFamily.com.
    Find everything from missing birth parents and birth siblings to relatives and friends. This site features a searchable bulletin board.

  • Ancestry.com.
    Whatever you imagine needing to research your family's roots -- you'll find it here. Other comprehensive genealogical sites include RootsWeb and the USGenWeb Project.

  • Adoption.com.
    Search for a lost birth relative through its Reunion Registry.

Friends

Sometimes it's for fun (finding an old classmate), sometimes it's for survival (finding a dead-beat dad). With the help of these sites, you'll pin down that missing person in no time.




  • 1-800-U.S.SEARCH.
    This site claims to be the No. 1 people-locator service in the world. (With all the accolades it's received, it's not our place to argue.) The search does cost money (at the time of this story, about $39.95), but 1-800-U.S.SEARCH does use the same databases used by the FBI, law enforcement agencies and private investigators. Plus you'll get search results in one hour. Other fee-charging sites that use the same public records include KnowX.com, US Public Info and PeopleFinder.com.

  • Whitepages.com.
    If the cost of a professional people-finder service is too steep, try this free site instead. It's one of many -- others include Yahoo People Search, Lycos' WhoWhere? and 411 Locate.

  • American Research Bureau.
    If you're looking for some quick cash, call these guys. They specialize in locating missing and unknown heirs.

  • Shipmates.
    Ever wonder what happened to that old service buddy? This site or the Veterans databases may have the answer.

  • Classmates.
    So what if it's been 20 years? Find that high school friend and give her a call.

Soul Mates

You wouldn't believe the number of personal ads and matchmaking sites on the Internet. Some are questionable, but these will hopefully point you toward your soul mate.

  • match.com.
    With kudos from Newsweek and USA Today, this site is the leader in online matchmaking. American Singles offers a similar service.

  • Large and Lovely Connections.
    This online dating/pen pal service specializes in plus-size single adults.

  • Science Connection.
    Find friendship or romance at the site for single people interested in science or nature.
