UK People Finder services across the entire UK

UK People Finder

UK people finder. Finding old friends absent pals, an ex- love or indeed a first love, that’s what we do, across the entire country  Extending to the Republic of Ireland and beyond.

It could be perhaps an old mate, or a staunch, trusted and devoted friend lost through the trickling sands of time.

Trace an ex-girl/boyfriend or former school teacher.

UK People Finder are not in any way private detectives, debtor chasers, Bailiffs, or anything of a forensic nature. Nor do we use any “sneak” or underhand tactics such as placing traces in people’s cars, or monitoring peoples movements, that’s not us. Our people finding service is a gentle touch.

Looking for a teenage first romance

Finding people within the UK is what are totally focussed on. Reconnecting you to people or friends who, for whatever reason, years ago, you lost touch with each other. Old Pals, ex-lovers, from your distant past who were at one time very important in their/your life. But for a wide variety of reasons somehow became disconnected.

For example:

Looking for old school friends

Or maybe other children whom you grew up with. Your Youth era, Work, College/University, Armed Forces, Former Boy/Girl friends-Old Flames. Also, very popular are ex-pat enquiries to help find an old flame.

Very nostalgic to be sitting on some exotic beach and remembering growing up in Scunthorpe some 50 years ago. (No offence intended to Scunthorpe)

Also, many people approach us from the U.K. seeking to reconnect with a teenage boy/girlfriend who came to the UK way – back, as a visitor.

Perhaps they were a holidaymaker or  an Au pair, for example.

Obviously the motives to reach out again, say after 50 years might seem to a younger person  bizarre, baffling, and an unreal fantasy world.

Especially when the motives can be merely no more than a desire to just say hello again, and ask how has your life been? Even though on the face of it, the task seems virtually impossible. We find the more obstacles placed in their way, the more determined people become. Which is lovely, demonstrating a good heart!

Especially urged on with the inexorably ticking of the father time clock

It does in some cases becomes quite obsessional with some people to get on with it and now! That is, despite us often trying our very best to dissuade them from doing it.

What does the future hold for People Tracing UK?

In our view, in years to come we shall be more or less redundant.

In contrast, from 50 years ago (non-digital age) people nowadays ‘early on’ exchange emails, Facebook, and or mobile phone numbers. This data is permanent and portable, remaining with you forever. Even if a mobile phone number changes, you have the back-up of Facebook or emails, where ID rarely changes. There will be of course some isolated cases, but not so often.

Let’s take a brief look at how we go about it.

The trick with people tracing is to know precisely where to start. One would think with the amount of today’s technology at our disposal, it would be quite easy to trace people. But many people quickly find themselves running into dead ends.

Doing the job yourself.

Searching for people has recently become more popular, especially tracing genealogies.You can use the national archives register as a starting point. Or another great source of information is parish registers, many dating back hundreds of years. Their records are usually immaculate.

We’ve discovered when conduction people tracing – proper preparation is crucial.

If you strike lucky, the research can be conducted solely from the comfort of home. Just by using the internet, telephone, and/or mailing. If only it was that easy!

Although Facebook has its perks for people tracing, the problem is, when you type in for instance “Frederick Smith”, you will be staring at possibly hundreds of profiles with the same name, for all over the world. So where do you start, which one? Also, many search strings on Facebook are not searchable. Plus, if the person doesn’t add you as a friend, there is only limited information available about them for you to go on.
