Find an old friend in canada
Updated: May 10, References. The internet makes finding an old friend much easier than it used to be, if you know which tools to use. Someone with common names or little online presence can still be tough to locate, but stay patient and leave messages on friend-finding sites, and he may be the one to find you. Government records are another good resource, especially if your friend has a court record or donated large amounts to political campaigns. To find an old friend, try doing a Google Image search of their first and last name and then clicking on any pictures of them that come up to see if they lead to your friend's contact information. You can also try using a search engine specifically designed for finding people, like Pipl or ZabaSearch.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Jasmine Thompson - Old Friends [Official Video]
How to Find an Old Friend in Canada

Ten years ago I was an exchange student in Windsor Ontario. Life and time and a couple of moves - from my home town to uni, and then from Sydney to Perth - saw me lose touch with the friends I made back then. So I'd really love to find one of host families at the time, a family that was really awesome to me when I was a dazed 18 year old abroad for the first time. I've tried going through Google and the phone book, and I've rung all the people in Ontario with the same name as my host dad and had no luck, though my method was a bit sloppy and I got lots of ring-outs and weird voicemail messages.
Still, international phone calls are expensive and I've found people have a hard time understanding my accent on the phone anyway! So I don't know if that's the best approach to take. Also, I'm sure the family still lives in Ontario as about two months ago my host mum rang my actual Mum in Australia.
Sadly, it was 2am and my mother didn't take down Joyce's number, but she did ascertain that the family was still living in the same area but "out of town". My memories of the biographical details of the family are pretty sketchy and I'm not turning up much on the intertubes. They could well have an unlisted number too. I have two old addresses for the family but I am positive they moved as I tried to get in touch at the last address with no success.
And it seems that despite all our well-founded fears about anonymity in the web age that some people just don't have much of an online presence! Their son was my age and I've tried to locate him as well with no success. It doesn't help he has a disgustingly common name So, how do I go about locating my old friends from the other side of the world and without spending much cash in the process? I'm also keen because I think I'll be in Canada next year for work and it would be nice to see my host family again after 10 years and show them how much improved I am from my year-old self.
Any Canadian sleuths have tips for me on people finding? NB - my host parents would be in their 60s by now. Maybe their kids are on it? I assume you've tried canada?
Get a phone card or buy some minutes on skype or whatever and keep calling. Do you remember where they worked? Have you tried contacting the agency that runs the exchange program? Also, international phone calls aren't expensive if you do them through Skype, specifically Skypeout.
I've used it for a year or two now instead of phone company long distance. Set up a profile and start looking there! Digital photos, metadata, and syncing with online This thread is closed to new comments.
