Finding people online and locating friends and family members who may live in different parts of South Africa or another country is becoming much easier to do through accessing certain databases and using various facilities. With enough information on a person such as email address, phone numbers, full names, date of birth, last known place of residence etc it is possible to use helpful applications such as the Yahoo people search facility which, when used correctly, can help to find people quickly on the Internet.
Searching for people using a phone number is a good way of finding people online, simply type the number, with area code, into a search engine such as Google, MSN or Yahoo. There is a possibility that you can locate the person in question free of charge by doing this although in our experience it has proved that using a paid service will give you better results. Some paid services have access to much larger databases with names and locations of millions of people all over the world and there are companies that employ staff just to search all day!
Free background checks are another useful way to locate the whereabouts of an individual. There are various free background checks available that are predominantly used to check a persons criminal records or marriage records. These public records are often used by police services and private investigators when needing to know where someone is living or even hiding! As time goes by, this kind of service is becoming more freely available and useful to anyone who is looking for ways of finding people online.
