1973 -2019 Hello Again!

Tracing Lost Friends | How To!

Tracing old mates, ex-girl/boyfriends, childhood pals-long gone.
Finding some of them although, often difficult, is not- impossible.
It depends on how much you want it!

How to go about reconnecting to your past and lost friends.

If you do sincerely want to reconnect to your past and specifically a lost friend, you do need to really immerse yourself in the task.

 Find Lost Friends Putting together recollections.

Cast your mind back to events, places, and other friends who knew your special friend too. For example, at various schools you both attended. Workplaces, Youth clubs, dance halls, discos, and other recreational pursuits. Obviously most important is a full name, as this is the fundamental building block platform, in which to assemble the search profile. However, without it, don’t worry, we will still give-it-a-go.

When retracing your past and lost friends why is the above information so important to the search.

Because these days web links can be created to virtually anyone, any location, any name, place of interest, at any time. Here is an example of how this works and can help you/us.

In Facebook, you can set up a page specifically for a particular road you lived in, say: the 1950s.

For example- Challney School Luton, Abingdon Road Luton, where you grew up, Beechwood School Youth Club, Vauxhall Motors ex-employees. For each one of these points of interest can be a Facebook page. This can theoretically attract people across the entire world who had some connection with any of these places. They can register on there, and then reconnect with others who were also there at some point. Actually they have a natural gravitational pull to other people who were once there too.

The web knows no borders

So, so far- so good. We then have an old school mate who for example is living in New Zealand Miraculously they may search for an old school mate too where you attended So, bingo, an unexpected link is created. This works well but- requires pro-action on both sides. Basically, it’s passive and relies on both of you, thinking about the same.

Now we look at the other side of the coin in retracing your past.

Retracing your past and lost friends lets-go!

Let’s assume only one, or none, appear in any of these group. Unless one of you registers, you will not find each other. Perhaps you might try a few, but not the one where your friends are listed. So, a lot of pitfalls!

So, what to do now? It requires you to get the “sleeves-rolled-up” and dig through various records.

Now it becomes a whole lot more tricky! You need to search that person’s name on the internet and hope to identify them.

1. Facebook.

Thwart with problems. If the surname is common it can produce thousands with the same name. Moreover spread across the entire world.

You can spend hours sending friends’ requests but unless it’s one you want they will probably not reply. But You might get lucky.

If it’s a female, without knowing their married name you are up against it. Or indeed may be divorced. Some revert to maiden name, others retain their former married name, have remarried, or indeed a new surname. Lastly, some people decide to change their name by deed poll. Good luck with that one- a bit of a minefield.

2. Electoral registers.

Obviously much easier to find the man, as the surname rarely alters. There are numerous mainly paid sites that can help here. But again if a common surname not easy.

Also in recent times, people can opt to have their names hidden from the open register. Searching historic archive registers which are easily accessible can give the answer.

That is, if they haven’t moved, which is often the case.

You could Place a post in the local newspaper, as often someone knows where they are. Or who is in contact with a brother or sister.

3. Consider employing a professional people tracer.

A ‘good one’ can handle all of the above and more. But it’s going to cost money. Some do offer a no find no-fee option, BUT if its a tough one, they are not going to spend days on end on it.

Tracers have bills to pay like everyone else. They can’t be expected to work weeks on end without receiving so much as one penny for their efforts. You may think you are being firm with them, but what will happen is your case will be sidelined.

However, there are a number of low cost 30 quid tracers out there. Be our guest and give them a try. Generally, they will use a piece of software and enter a name and that’s- about it!!

Locating your past, and lost friends along the way, can frankly take from many hours, days, and indeed sometimes years.

Often having to make personal visits to archive electoral rolls situated in far-flung local libraries and town halls. As well as knocking on doors.

Retracing your past.

Unless you have the time, patience, and gritty determination. Use a professional.

Alternatively, we have given you some of the tools to undertake the task yourself.

Good Luck! See our website https://friendsreconnected.co.uk/ 2019
