Searching for someone who has have moved to another part of this earth has its challenges... but this page is designed to make your search fruitful.

There are finders that can locate someone in Australia, Europe, Africa, South America, Asia...

How To Do An International People Search

Here you can learn how to find a person in most countries... Someone you just have not had the time to keep in touch with - it happens, I know.

Wouldn't it be easiest if you could get a hold of the person's email address? Then you could just send an email to them, talk about you and ask all the questions you want.

And later you guys can exchange phone numbers or talk on Skype!

You can quite easily find a person's email address with a program that works kind of like an international people search engine.

It's called the World Email Finder.
