    Unhappy Searching for an old friend

    Hello All!

    I'm Lori.. I live in California, USA.

    I'm seeking an old friend, and hoping you all might help. I haven't much to go on, and it's hard to do UK searches from the US.

    Please tell me if I'm in the right place.

    My friend, who I've not seen in 20 years, is from Liverpool, and, according to his exwife (who gave the info grudgingly) he's back there today.

    He's now somewhere about 57-67 years old. His name is David. (and yes, I do know his last name, but I'm not sure that posting it publically is the right thing to do... help!)

    I remember that he was born in either Nov or May (better than nothing), that he has grown children, that he lived in the US (in Florida) for several years.

    I miss him, and we're not getting any younger. (no foolin' eh?)

    Can anyone there help me? I'd be so appreciative..

    Thank you all in advance for taking the time to read this, and even considering my request.

    Best Wishes-
    Lori

    I think you're going to have to post a surname. Also, try on the Echo ex-pats bulletin board.

    Hi Lori

    Click here for the Echo forum, the Ex-Pats section is about halfway down the (long) page.

    Good luck

    Default Hi Mandy

    Thanks, yes.. but what's an Electoral Roll and how does one get further with the search?

    I think the issue is that I'm here, in the US (close to Haight/Ashbury, BTW!) and just don't "get" the search engine.

    Furthermore, I've not a clue where to go next.. I can't make a bundle of overseas calls to try and locate him. pooh.

    Any other advice? I really appreciate your help!

    Go to www.vonage.com change your 'phone provider to them. The fee is $25 a month + taxes and includes calls to all the USA,Canada and 5 European countries including the UK and Ireland. I have used them for almost 3 years and it is a great service.

    Default thanks, but

    for business purposes, I can not. So I'm stuck with looking this way, and praying I'll get lucky.

    I so appreciate your time!!

    Could be, Karen! That's the most exciting news I've heard yet! Certainly, the age is about right... did what you found offer any other info? Also, how did you do that, and may I hug you now?? I am SO grateful for the assistance!!
