How To Find Someone | from your Past


Find Someone from your Past

Find somone from your past. Truly one of the greatest joys in life is to be able to reconnect with a long lost friend. Especially when its an old flame!

However be in no doubt, the task offers quite a lot of challenges along the way.

Especially if the relationshp broke down in acrimoniosly circumstances and it was yout fault. Even after 50 years has elapsed often the injured/spurned party remain bitter. You shattered their love and devotion towards you, leaving a mental scar.

By all means give-it-a-go but be prepared for a rebuff.

We offer a service dedicated to assisting people who wish to do- precisely that.

Find a childhood sweetheart

Here we offer some advice on how to go about it. It could be an old flame, childhood sweetheart, a long lost School, work, Military or indeed from any walk of life.

Let’s begin though by saying; reconnecting with someone whom you lost contact with ages ago, really and in total honesty- isn’t easy!

Of course in these days of multiple digital routes, you can on the face of it, far more easily pursue finding lost friends

But, logically we at Friends reconnected, would not be in existence if it was that easy.

Our average request involves tracing back 50 years and beyond. This is a vastly more complicated affair than some ‘same day’ search offers.

It does require a totally different more creative/ lateral thinking and intellectual approach.

A truly rewarding, challenging, as well as intriguing experience With a bonus of lots of twists and turns along the way.

The search for lost friends

Our researchers who are also family members-(Dads Army we call them) Often find themselves burning the ‘midnight oil’ in attenpting to find your long last friend.

Totally engrossed, and becoming totally embroiled. – Rather like becoming locked into a ‘kind- of’ time warp. Immersed in the often-intriguing trail of numerous dead-end routes, and disappointing false starts.

The journey takes us back through the decades

As a bonus, for our researcher’s (retied folk) it evokes for them many pleasant memories too..

Indeed its fair to say they are never bored. If they were-they wouldn’t do it. Usually we find ourselves having to drag them away from their research work.

Describing some thoughts and Experiences of Being a Researcher (genealogist)

Our founder John now age 73, has priceless knowledge and first hand expewrience in thisd field. Personal real first-hand experience. Having himself lived through the decades we now find ourselves covering.

Being from the baby boomer era hinself adds something special to what we do. As it becomes interwoven into some fond personal memories and experiences with his own past too. Somehow, we feel at times gives us an edge.

We liken it for example to a soldier recalling landing on the beaches of Normandy on D day.

Nobody can describe it like they can unless- they  were there too.

Here are some snippets he mentions relating to his own real experiences aboard the time passage machine. Many of which our older enquirers might relate to.

1954. A trip with grandma to a “Lyons Corner House,” A truly wonderful treat for a small child. Or, accompanying his Mum to a local very up-market “Home and Colonial” store. Being allowed to go on camping trips with the cubs and scouts. Memories of  Living under canvass and cooking sausages on a stick over the camp fire. The bus which transported them: a “Leyland Tiger” omnibus.

1958. Asking dad for an ‘all the rage’ at that time- ‘Claud Butler’ racing cycle. Only to have his hopes dashed as it was out of dad’s financial reach.

1964. Sitting in a worker’s café in 1964 and listening for the first time to the spellbinding ‘Walker Brothers’, Or the magical voice of Jackie Trent, Dusty Springfield, Jimmy Ruffin, it’s like we are back there again. Click on an above artist/group to play their wonderful music- Youtube.

1968. Woodstock Era.

The list goes on. But of course, that’s just a few snippets from his own personal memories.  However he recognises that to many what he remembers,  may seem to others rather boring, and mundane.

Revisiting our past

As we grow older we find many of us wish to reconnect with those whom we lost along the way. This is what we do, and indeed enjoy doing. There are various reasons including: –

Saying sorry

to convey regrets and thank the special person for once spending part of their lives with them. To say now, many things unsaid between them 50 years ago. To confess they were a complete inconsiderate bum in those days. “I would likve to make it up to you”.

So without appearing morbid lets- go before its too late!

Find a lost friend

If its an ex sweetheart can be a very sensitive area. Even when we find them we have to pitch the approach in a non threatening way. Often the husband or wife are suspicious and wary of such an approach. In many cases refusing to pass on correspondence.

Finding an old friend. Lets go!
