While performing genealogy and/or family tree searches, you may find yourself searching for a living relative.
Or you may just wish to find a long lost military friend, classmate, or even a childhood love crush.
Thanks to the Internet, each year, thousands of people successfully find living relatives and/or friends.
Whether it is a question of finding a close missing relative, or trying to find a distant cousin, knowing your relatives and building a family tree can be a wonderful experience.
If you are currently building a family tree, a search for a dead relative can be time-consuming and cumbersome, while you are trying to establish the last place of residence and piece together other, far removed relatives.
Older vital records, such as birth and marriage certificates, are normally more difficult to find and verify.
However, in the past you had to go and travel from state to state and agency to agency, looking for copies of vital records while searching for ancestors. Fortunately, you no longer need to go that route. You can simply use the online resources provided here by Investigations 123 com.
Living people have normally the benefit of being connected online, thus having records published on the Web.
You can simply perform a search engine query at Google / Bing / Yahoo! for the person you are looking for, using familiar keywords (i.e. name, city, employer, etc). Such search may turn up plenty of results for starting your preliminary investigation on a living person.
Furthermore, if you do know the location of such living person, you can use online directories, such as www.whitepages.com. This directory may be able to narrow down your search and even provide an address or phone number.
Another great online resource for finding lost schoolmates is through alumni associations such as www.classmates.com or on www.facebook.com.
With the current technology and specialized online investigation services (provided among others by Investigations123.com), you can easily search and find living people and ancestors from the comfort of your own couch, without the need to go and travel from state to state (and from agency to agency within each state). Happy hunting! [Below is a sample report].
