For many reasons a people search in the USA is conceivable.
However, there is no population register in the USA. Therefore, it is not possible to determine whether someone is registered in a certain city.
For this reason, other search methods are used when searching for people in the USA. Professionals are able to track down most people in America.

What can I do myself to find someone in America?
Before you hire a professional investigator to find someone, you can use the resources of the Internet to help you. Sometimes this helps to find people in America.
In the course of skip tracing in the USA you can do much more than just look into the phone book online. Today, moreover, not everyone has registered a phone number that is listed there. But: If you know a phone number, you can do a reverse search.
Depending on the type of search and the known information, you can contact different information centres. Suppose you search for someone who was previously in the military, there are other contact points.
Are you looking for active or former military personnel? Then you can search in public records for US Army persons. Those records are:
- www.archives.gov/st-louis (former soldiers)
- www.hrc.army.mil (active soldiers)
- www.army.com (reservists)
- www.usace.army.mil (Information about Army members)
- www.gsa.gov/portal/content/103939 (National Personnel Records Centre)

Not to forget the modern ways of the Internet. So it’s possible for you to search over the almost already usual sources also overseas for persons. Many of these pages are also suitable as person search engines. Which result comes out thereby, however, is always different:
- www.bing.com (Any other search engine is also possible, because all search engines have different databases)
- www.facebook.com (The address search is difficult, but contact is possible)
- www.twitter.com (You can also contact and send a message via social networks such as Twitter)
- www.linkedin.com (Sometimes the employer and even the phone number of the company is listed)

Is it possible to combine a person search with an on-the-spot check?
When searching for addresses in the United States, we will first use all possible resources to determine a person’s current whereabouts. This will then also be checked in local registers. It is also possible to carry out a check directly on the spot.
For this purpose, a private investigator will go directly “on-site”. The private detective will carry out his investigations very discreetly. This form of investigation is then more expensive than a normal address search.
People search in the USA is often completed within a few days. However, there are sometimes cases in which a search takes a longer time.
What does the people search in the USA cost?
In general, there is unfortunately no fixed unit price for a search for people and their address.
In fact, the cost of a people search in America depends on various factors. The more details you know about the person you are looking for, the cheaper the search will usually be.
Then the question arises whether the pure address inquiry is sufficient for you, or whether still a check of this address must take place locally. This is easier to do in the large centres of the USA than in remote areas.
If an on-site inspection in cities like San Diego, Boston or Denver is necessary, it is much cheaper than researching in remote areas of the Nevada desert or in lonely rural areas.
It also makes a big difference if you are looking for a person with a rather unique name or if you are looking for Thomas Miller. If nothing else about the subject is known, the search might be almost impossible. Because people with this first name and last name probably exist in great numbers in the United States. That is why a search by name is not possible in such a case.
Consequently, different prices will be charged for address searches in the USA. However, we have various offers according to which certain services can be carried out in the USA at fixed prices.
Who is searched for in the USA?
The reasons for a people search are very different. In general, however, it can be said that the following cases are probably the most regular reasons for an address search:
- Search for debtors in the United States of America
- Search for former friends
- Search for emigrants
- Search for the biological father
- Search for heirs living in the United States of America
- Review of individuals who have been introduced to the Internet and who impersonate a businessman or American soldier
- Search for former schoolmates (often from their time as exchange students)
These and similar backgrounds form the basis of most search jobs.
