How many times have you thought to yourself 'I wonder what ever happened to so and so' How do you go about looking for them. There are a number of social sites now online where you could find that person who you have lost touch with over the years. Facebook is a good place to start. I have found a couple of old school friends through looking on facebook. Friends reunited is another site where there is a good chance of finding old school or work friends.
I have recently being trying to find an old friend from my school days. When i was 14 i went on holiday to France with my high school. The town where i grew up in Lancashire, had a twin town in France. All students were matched with a french boy or girl and went to stay with their family's. A few months after this trip the french students came over to England and it was our turn to play hosts.
It has always been with regret that i lost touch with the french girl and her family. A couple of weeks ago i was looking at the council website for my home town. I found a page relating to the towns twin town in France . Apparently the exchange is still going on. I sent an e-mail to the council asking if they would have any idea how to find my lost exchange student, I received an e-mail last week starting with 'Bonjour'. No they had not found my friend but my details and request had been passed on to someone in France who is going to help me trace my french friend.
So watch this space ,i will post when i have some good news.
