How to Find Someone

Before you start to find someone on the Internet, where is the best place to hunt?  Want to know if they have accounts on adult dating sites like craigslist?, or banging strange men on Tinder? He or she could be an expert in their field, and could be active participants in discussion groups and mailing lists. What kind of contact information are you trying to find? When you begin to find people, you can often find contact information such as phone number, email address, and website address.

As a journalist, it can sometimes be difficult to track down contact information of people you need to find. Our Journalism Net pages provide excellent quality, up-to-date resources on how to find people, get in contact with them, and locate the resources you need to complete your journalism report.

Finding People

Find PeopleThe Internet has multiple tools that you can use to find people. Search for people through search engines, reunion sites, genealogy sites, mailing lists, and more. If the person in question is an expert in his or her field, it is possible that they are active participants in related discussion groups and forums. Knowing what, where and how to search will help you with finding the people you need to contact.

How to Find People

After you find the person you are looking for, you need to know how to find their contact information. There are various tools on the web that you can utilize to contact someone, including phone number searches and email and web address searches. If you have contact information and need to find out who it belongs to, you can trace that information using a reverse phone book and reverse phone lookup, or a reverse email search or ISP tracer. There are also various domain tools that will allow you to find out who owns a web page.

Instructions on using the Manitoba court page
(provided by CBC’s Melanie Verhaeghe )

1) On the first screen, click on court registry.
2) On the second screen, on the left hand side, click on Name Search (assuming you don’t know file numbers and are searching to see if the company or person you are researching has any lawsuits on-going).
Also, this page will tell you what court records are available.
3) On third screen, enter company name or person’s last name in the Surname/company space. In Given name slot, use the person’s full name but I would suggest you also search using the person’s first name initial only. Sometimes names are spelled wrong, or off by a few letters. Also, if nothing comes up, try different spellings of the last name (humans enter the names, so mistakes happen)..
Also, some codes you’ll see on the pages:
QB – Queen’s Bench
CR – criminal
CI – civil
SC – Small claim
FD – family division
File numbers will look like this: CI-00-01-18547
The CI – means civil lawsuit, 00 – means the year ie. 2000, the 01 and the 18547 are locators for the file clerks.
4) Under the search results page: you will get a list of results, the file numbers are on the left hand side. And they should appear in highlighted green. Click on the file number. Unfortunately, the file contents (reasons for the lawsuit) are not on-line, but at least it will tell you who is suing who. And it will most often tell you who the lawyers are (and if they’re highlighted green) then you can click on it, and get the phone number and address of the lawyer. DE- means defendant, PL – plaintiff.

– For full file details, the lawyers will often provide that for you, or you have to go to the court house with the file number and ask to see it on the main level of the York Avenue court in Winnipeg. They are all public info.. You can read them, photocopy them, but you can’t leave the building with them.
