Finding People

People from other branches of your family tree, people with information relating to your line. So where do we start when looking for these people to assist?

The simplest and easiest way to start these days are online social networks. With such huge numbers of people on sites like Facebook it’s little wonder that you can locate many, if not all of the people you are looking for. If you can’t find them, perhaps you can find someone close to them, a relative perhaps, someone that can help you with your research.

As with most research though, sometime it can be more difficult than expected to find the person you need, and that’s where People Finder sites come in, like the Philippines own They have countless resources that can help you find people both present and sometimes past. They cover everything from public records through to missing persons.

Another simple but often overlooked tip is to simply try typing their name into Google. As it references so many documents on the web, you have quite a good chance of locating someone.
