How do I find an old friend?
Do the reverse go to the White pages on the Internet and input your friend's first, middle, and last name. Cross reference with his parents names as well. Then check the marriage records in the state she or he lives. You should find your friend no problem. (04/07/2007)
I found a lot of friends through searching Myspace. You need an account of your own to search (just need an email: they only send you mail when friends are contacting you). This way people can find you (or you them) even if the phone number is unlisted. I love it! (04/07/2007)
Try going on line. There are web sites you can search and register where you went to highschool.
You can also be notified when a new person registers. (04/08/2007)
First if you know their name, Google them by their name and the city where they lived the last time you saw them. It's amazing the information you can get. If you can't find them, look for their parents name, the name of a brother or sister and you may find a way to contact them that way.
Because women marry and change their names, if you don't know the married name, it can be more difficult, but some use their maiden name as a middle name so they may still come up.
The information about the reunion sites can also be helpful, because many people have the same names doing a whole country search might not be the easiest. Looking just on the original family name, you might find a relative on a family tree site to help in your search.

If you know an organization where your friend was a member, or the year and school where they graduated, they often have up-to-date information.
One tip: Instead of asking for information about that person, which many places will not release, give your information to the organization or school, and ask them to give it to your friend, so they can contact you. This works very well.
