Google Their Name!

Google — or your favorite search engine — is the best place to start your exploration. Use the person's full name and or the city they live in and put your query in quotes to weed out unrelated names. Using quotes and full names (including middle initials if you know them) is especially helpful if the person you are looking for has a common name like Sam Smith. You will have to sort through millions of pages, but search engines are great basic information like links to Facebook, blogs, personal websites and official records.
