Find A Person
To find a person. We are a specialist in finding long-lost people. Ex: Classmates, childhood and adolescent sweethearts. First love and heartbreaking lost loves.
Do you remember an old classmate?
The best pal who you used to climb trees together with? The one you were always in trouble with the law for minor pranks. Such as “scrumping apples” or driving a cricket ball through the window at the local vicarage. Knock-up-ginger. Plugging a grumpy neighbours’ car exhaust pipe with a potato.
Find your first love
What about your first boy or girlfriend? What can you remember about them today? Would you fancy reuniting with them once more? Maybe there was someone very special who meant such a lot who disappeared somewhere along the way in your journey through life.
Someone whom you would dearly love to find again.
What became of them all?
Wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to reconnect with someone who was once so dear? For those of us who have reached middle age and beyond, there comes a time to reflect and evaluate our earlier lives. Recalling the good and the bad times, and those friends with whom we spent days months and years of our lives.
“Sweet is the memory of distant friends!
Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly yet sadly on the heart.” Washington Irving – Father of the American short story.
We all know someone who once so enriched our lives before they left that we feel the huge gap they left behind. Now we regret that we didn’t stay in touch and we are sad at their departure.
Yes, we might worry that the best is behind us – but it doesn’t have to be.
We would love to help you to trace a lost friend.
Find Lost Friends | Once Found |Then What?
Tracing old friends. Many of us decide at some point in life to press that small pause button. Taking a moment to look back, think and wonder how life has turned out for a long lost dear friend. To treasure precious times, memories, often through rose-tinted glasses. But preserve these memories we should, as once gone, its forever!
You ask yourself- where are they? Before long you find an overwhelming urge to reach out to them again. But if you DO find them – what happens then?
Look at old photographs taken 40 years ago!
Then today look in the mirror, and cringe! That, however, applies to many of us. We all have the same insecurities. So it’s on both sides.
Before you know it there is a sense of panic and perhaps questioning the wisdom of trying to reconnect.
Maybe I should never have attempted to dig up the past?
Of course, the simple solution is to simply avoid ever meeting up again. Thus keeping alive and intact, memories of when you were both young and vibrant. But without the downsides.
That way you do not sully or damage those enduring recollections you have of each other. The ones stored away deep in the memory.
Appearance-wise, has ‘mother nature’ been unkind to us?
Does it or should it matter? In our opinion -NO! But we are all different.
Are you self-confident enough to take this leap? Of course, there is always the cosmetic surgery route. Indeed, it so happens, we know one! LOL
Conversely, this dilemma and concern rarely apply when reconnecting with an old pal of the same-sex. Neither of you cares-so it’s safer.! Down the pub and before you know it talking about the good old days. Patting the expanded midriffs with a joke and a smile. Between two males or females, it’s all ok.
People Finder | Feedback from clients.
Here is feedback from a typical client:- “Thanks for enabling me to finally make peace with my long lost sweetheart. Although more than 40 years have passed the guilt and shame of my bad behaviour never left me”.
“A big thank you to friends reconnected. You managed in a matter of two days to solve a mystery I was unable to unravel in almost 40 years…well done!”
Today, if at all possible many of our more elderly enquirers want to grab that unexpected second chance to put it right. They see their own mortality and a desire to get on with it now! Despite being fully aware they may well be on the receiving end of a rebuff. To find a lost friend. Yep…the clock is ticking.
Although realising that after 40 years have elapsed you just cannot simply resume where you left off- that is passe!
Old Friend Finder Services | How Far Back Do We Go?
Our searches are unlike most others. In as much as we regularly dig as far back as the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Of course when asked. we have no objection to digging back even further. But understandably the take-up rate is quite low.
“Do most other people tracing organisation work the same way as you?”
Yes, it’s twice as difficult with the female genre. With marriages/divorces and ensuing surname changes.
Skeletons in the cupboard.
We often find some unexpected surprises along the way. So -be prepared!
A most common one is; the individual fibbing about their age. Usually, it comes from the female genre. Girls who claimed to be age 16 plus were actually only 15.
Kids from the 1950s and growing up earlier.
In many ways during the 1950s/60 certain things were more relaxed. Certainly, no social services breathing down everyone’s neck. Kids could take a part-time job from whatever age they were as long as their parents approved. Usually, it was from age 12 onwards. Early morning milk rounds before school. Evening and weekends assisting with grocery and bread delivery rounds. No bad thing in our opinion.
In those days, on your 15 birthday, you could basically leave school.
Many of the kids immediately went to work on cruise liners. Many skipped school early at age 14 to work on these ships.
Often returning months later, and giving us other kids a full and sometimes lurid report. From their experiences, they returned home more self-assured, confident and armed with lots of money stashed away in their post office savings account. I guess their parents must have known where they were.
Creative thinking is something we excel at. Good luck!
