5 Ways To Find Your Schoolmates

April 16th, 2009 by Andreas Xavier in Schoolmates, Social Media. Topics:

Thanks to technology and the ingenious creation of social networking websites such as Facebook, MySpace and Friendster. Such social networks give members the privilege to seek old buddies that was thought to have been lost forever. These websites not only connect people but also allow photo sharing, virtual gift sending and online interaction with members.

Once again, technology paves another way for us to keep in touch with old friends. The search engines. Just type their full name. This method may have been seen as if trying to look for a needle in a haystack but the blogging trend has given a new meaning to locating friends through the search engines. And if real names do not provide you positive results, try using their nicknames.

Finding your friends through public records could be another valuable method. WhitePages is one of the best public record database available online. All you have to do is enter the first and the last name, the city and the state of the person you are looking for and you will get a list of results. You need to be as specific as you can, if not you will just have to get through a long list before you get to the right person.

Another alternative is to check on the school alumni. Most of the alumni would have a website and if there aren’t any, just take a trip down memory lane. Go back to your school to get the contacts and while you are at it, pay your honorable teachers a visit. Find out which friends are active and give them a call. They will get you linked to others.

There’s actually a more simple and old-fashioned manner that could be of good use to find your schoolmates. Go and dig up your old phonebooks or diary books that you circulated around for the “before leaving school messages”. Call every phone number there is. Most likely you will get their parents on the line and through them your friends new contacts.
