Fact Finding on the Internet: Finding People

Points to Remember About People Finding Tools

Finding people and their whereabouts can be invaluable, whether you're trying to track down witnesses, defendants, or someone who owes money to you or your client.  Keep in mind that there are many people finding tools available out there.  The websites referenced in this LibGuide represent just a small portion of those.  Also, each website listed will have its strengths as well as some weaknesses.  Some people will be found easily on some and some may not be found on others. 

Also keep in mind that many of these sites will only provide minimal information for free.  Details on that person may require purchasing a subscription to that resource.

TruePeopleSearch shows many previous addresses as well as current address and phone numbers, including cell phone numbers.


Whitepages has sections on finding people, locating businesses, performing a reverse phone lookup, and a feature called "Address and Neighbors" which allows you to find out the names of everyone residing in a particular area.

Pipl claims to search the "deep web" in search of more relevant results on people.  Most of the results retrieved are from other search databases that charge a fee, but it can still be a good start.


Searchbug has a few free links for finding people and performing reverse phone lookups.


Anywho, from AT&T, provides White Pages information, Yellow Pages information, reverse phone lookup, and area and zip code lookup.


Black Book Online has many free public records searches.



MyLife can be a great resource for finding detailed information about people

Spokeo is another people finding tool that only provides minimal free information, with links to paid content.



ZabaSearch is another search engine with people searching capabilities.  There is also a feature that allows you to see if anyone has sent you a message, in the fourth tab on the top!


Peoplefinders is another tool for tracking down people.  Like many of these sites, though, detailed information requires signing up for an account and paying a fee.

Search All Junk allows you to search Craigslist ads, Penny Saver ads, and several other classifieds.
