Find People Free Search Engines
There are many ways to find people free through search engines. You can plug in your own information into the search box, surrounded by quotes, to see what type of data pulls up from your name. If your name is common, you will probably need to add some more information such as city or state to narrow down the results. This will give you some practice before you do your real search.
Now try the person you are looking for through the search engine of your choice, which is usually the big G. You should just type their name first in quotes to see what pulls up. If you need to narrow down the results, hopefully you have other information to narrow the data or pinpoint where they are located. The city is usually the best info you can add, but sometimes you may not know. So go with your best guess on a state then fan out from their if needed. There are other cost free people search sites above and beyond this one.
Totally Free People Search Results
One of the other ways to gain totally free people search results would be through county auditor property search engines. Let's say you narrow down your person and find out the state and city that they reside in. Of course, you can try their information through the local yellow pages. However, there is a choice to find out a lot about the person before you make contact with them. Or you can just use it to look up your friends, family and neighbors if you want.
To do this, you will want to locate the county auditor site that collects property information. Start with your county and look up your own information. If you do not know the web address, just do a search for the name of your county, plus the word auditor.org. This should pull up most of these sites, but I have not tried all of the states.
You can search the person through these county public search records (http://publicsearchrecordsinfo.com/
