Attempting Reconnecting Old Friends- Here We Describe Some Aspects Of The tasks ahead.

If you are really and seriously determined to reach out to them once again- be under no illusions- reconnecting old friends is very challenging. As well as a massively time-consuming task. 

Or maybe you’ve already learned this from attempting the process yourself. If so, you undoubtedly know it’s not exactly a walk-in-the-park!

The biggest and the most depressing aspect- (we know ourselves) is the sheer frustration at forever running into dead-ends.

Can We Help In Your People Search?

Being Seasoned people tracing veterans (since 1962) we have wise old- heads in this- “person tracing department.”

Apart from the acquired and priceless knowledge of knowing “where to look” we are realists, but at the same time mega determined.

We know that although there will undoubtedly be set-back we are programmed to go again. That is what perhaps sets up apart. People Tracing Services with https://friendsreconnected.co.uk/ We offer our esteemed services to support you in this daunting task!

First, have a close look around at various people searching options out there. Then, maybe you might decide to give us a try!

A bit about Our People Finder Services

Reconnection old friends-Turns back the pages of your personal history.

Here we describe more-on what we are about.

Let us begin by saying its very much a joint operation. Together we embark on the journey bouncing thoughts and elements off each other. Delving deep into your past in order to help reunite you with that very special person. We do the ‘legwork’ and you help fill in some of the blanks.

People Search is quite varied and complex:-

It may surprise you to know that much of our efforts are not on social media or indeed other online stuff. Actually, to deliver a successful outcome usually involves a substantial amount of old-fashioned “ Mr. Plod” style foot-soldier investigations. This is the category we come into.

Yes, there are plenty of online people search and genealogy sites and other software out there- but: that’s what they are-ONLINE. If the software doesn’t deliver that it! Chances are they will not do what we do.

When it comes to the people finding business, online, there are still huge gaps to be filled in.

For example “free” software.

Great, but unless you pay It does not give a combined listed address. Names of spouses, name changes (Birth, deed poll or divorce) death record, dates between address, etc. Also unless you know how it works it’s quite difficult to know which search button to press.

Facebook (on its own) rarely provides the specific person we are seeking. It simply throws up hundreds of “maybes” to wade through.

Having said that-Facebook does effectively supplements the information we already have. Giving us valuable access to other family members. Perhaps a son/daughter who can often unlock the puzzle.

People Finder

How long is it likely to take? Our average case takes conservatively 80 hours to conclude!

Take a look at some of our actual case studies to gain an idea of what is involved in people finder searches click here

Often taking literally endless hours spent on painstaking data checking. Then cross-checking, again and again, eliminating many false- starts.

Sometimes we need to journey to the individual’s town of birth. Or make a personal visit to any previous addresses. Or to cross-check archived electoral registers, to confirm crucially a person’s middle name.

Naturally, before embarking on such a journey we clear it with our client first.

If that doesn’t work we start again- and see if we missed anything. Going forward, backward, sideways, or turning it all upside down!

Some food for thought to reconnect with old friends using our services.

For a start, we respectfully ask that you peruse our website in its entirety.

Understandably before arriving here at this point, we suspect many of you may have already exhausted the Internet. Including some rather tempting modest fees.

As described above this level of service relies totally on software. Which of course only works in a linear fashion. Click the search button and it comes up or it doesn’t- (one shot only).

It probably works well if you seek a person who has recently disappeared. Or is in numerous current systems – credit checks, debtors, absconders etc.

We are often congratulated on our creative and lateral thinking. This is due to mainly our founder ‘John’s’ long experience in genealogy. A history dating back to the 1960s. We find many of our breakthroughs are due entirely to his creative thinking.

One particular people search case highlights this:-

Having spent on and off more than 2 years investigating/researching one particular case TBH, even we were about to give up! Having already exhausted every single route, with not so much as a glimpse of a break-through.

The vital missing link was a ‘time period’-one which needed to be pretty precise.

Basically and crucial to the search, the client just could not remember the exact year when he first met the lady in question. Prompted by us further, he recalled that when they first met – significantly he had just bought a rather flashy new car. Which at the time was his pride and joy.

Moreover, he actually remembered the car registration number. It’s’ a bit like an N.I or National Service number -something you never forget.

We suggested he contact the DVLA archives to find out exactly from when- to -when he actually owned that car….VOILA!!

Now armed with this information enabled us to find her. In short, having the actual year provided us the crucial link we needed. Giving us the names on electoral roll archives) of next door and surrounding neighbours. Although some were now deceased, those who remain, and their siblings gave us what we needed. One neighbour actually knew whom she married, and indeed where she resides today.

Here we have produced a blog on the emotion and feelings behind someone search to reconnect with that special friend Its aptly entitled Nostalgia and pining towards the past.
