How to Get Started

1. Gather any documents that you have and do not rely on recollection of other family members.

So often my clients have information in their possession that they do not realize can be invaluable to help aide in their search. Memory tends to dim over time so it's important to look for all of your documents and try to replace any that have gone missing.

2. Keep a log of things that you have done to find that person whom you are looking for. Organization is key so that you do not spend unnecessary time and money repeating steps that have you already done.

3. Listen to your instincts. When I am searching, I am almost always drawn to a piece of information that helps me to solve a search. We all have an inner voice. Listen to yours!
