We can carry out investigations in the USA, Canada and Ireland for our clients. Most of our work in these countries is done on behalf of UK clients, wanting to trace family they've lost touch with. We do accept international clients from any country. If we can help you, we will.
USA People Search
Have you noticed other people search websites? Most of them involve you doing the investigation for the same price as hiring us, and we're professionals! Even with $200 to be spent on these people search websites, you'll just end up with a list of POSSIBLE new locations for your missing person or places they left months ago! You'd have to spend time calling these leads YOURSELF! Other "People Search" products will charge you $39.99 for a list of about 10-40 links to websites that then ask for fees to search their databases. Often these databases produce old leads, involve you spending more money and time than it would cost to hire a professional.
We have contacts in several US states who can search for missing persons nationwide. There are various American Investigation associations we are also in communications with, so we can always find a local agent to subcontract work to if needed.
Canadian People Search
According to our website statistics, 10% of our visitors are Canadian. This page is for you!
The service includes a full check of Canadian public records, and specialist databases. We also carry out any required "foot work", such as calling leads and confirming the new address.
There are other websites offering "Canadian" people searches. Keep in mind that a lot of these websites are only providing American information, giving you links to FBI websites and U.S. State public records. These are next to useless in searching for Canadians, unless they've immigrated to America.
You will come accross several people search websites that offer you the tolls for "DIY Investigations". They are a con, you end up paying $40 for a collection of web links and free to use online phonebooks. You wouldn't assume you were a plumber after spending 10 minutes in a hardware store, so a website probably can't make you a PI.
Ireland People Search
We cover Northern Ireland as part of our UK searches. There's some additional fees as some records are not online and only kept in Belfast archives. For the Republic of Ireland, the investigations can be 2 to 3 times the price of a UK search. This is because our Irish investigators have to visit a series of archives to get the same information that's available online in the UK.
It can be a problem tracing people in Ireland as they can freely move between two countries and records systems – the Republic of Ireland and the UK (Northern Ireland). Often we suggest doing the UK search first if they could be in N.I. As it is much cheaper.
They've immigrated but I don't know where to...
Helping people search for missing family and friends abroad is part of our job, occasionally we track someone to an address in the UK only to hear from the new occupants that they've immigrated. We need to know which country they have immigrated to as a miniumum amount of information. The UK passport and identity office will not share any information with anyone, they will not even confirm if that person is listed as being abroad. You should phone friends in common to help find out where they've immigrated to, we can help find the family and friends if you only know pieces of information.
