With today’s social media and database sites, you can easily search for and find any person, no matter where they live in the world. Here is a list of some of the top sites to search for your long-lost childhood friends.
The universal way to find information about anybody and everybody in the world through the internet is through Facebook. Do you want to find the address of a person you met in a summer camp when you were seven years old? Don’t worry. Search for them on Facebook. If they can not be found, search for other friends you remember from the camp. Check their friend's list. Enquire about this particular person through chat. Some friends of a friend of a friend might give you the details you need.
Facebook’s network is probably the biggest and most easily accessible one in the entire world. Any person living a modern life and not hiding under a rock will have a presence on Facebook. Search through interconnected networks to find your friend. Even if your friend is not on Facebook, spreading the word you are searching for the person will lead to someone they know with a Facebook account like the son, or other acquaintances who will give you some details about your childhood friend.
Websites like Alumni.net and Innfriend.com are available to search for your friends through alumni networks. Alumni.net has several networks from different universities spread all over the world sharing their alumni database with them. It is the best place to find a long-lost school or college friends.

People search websites are a great way to find details about childhood friends who lived nearby and you know some information about.

Several corporate companies use it to run background checks on the employees they are hiring. The site gathers details from several public records like social media, vehicle records, caller ids, and property records.
If you know what profession they are currently doing, LinkedIn is a great way to search for them.

You can just select the city, state, and school and type the name of your friend to find the last details about them.

Other ways to track childhood friends
Other social media networks apart from Facebook and even simple Google searches can help you gather many details about your childhood friends. If you don’t know anything about your friend, other than their name, start by typing their full name in a Google search. Many social media profiles with the same name will pop up. Segregate the search through location if you know where they are living and proceed to look for them. You might have to go through a lot of profiles until you find the right one, but that work is definitely worth it!
Alternatively, you can ask for the city directories in public libraries which have details about most of the residents and when they moved out. You can check with the postal department for the last address change. Brbpub.com is a website that has several public records, which is helpful to locate people you lost touch with.
Apart from searching for your exact friend in all these records and social media, look for someone from your friend's family or close circle. If you can locate that person, contact them and get your friend's details from them. When you are searching for childhood friends, remember, you are not searching for one single person, but the search will connect you to a network of friends who will help you reach the goal.
Childhood memories are never full without friends. Every person wants to relive their childhood nostalgia with the ones who accompanied them when they were young. The trip down the memory lane is refreshing, helps us reevaluate our actual dreams and goals, and often makes us feel proud of our accomplishments.
Modern technology aids people in connecting easily and faster like never before in history. Make maximum use of the free websites to collect enough details about your childhood friends effortlessly and for free in most cases.
