they aim to raise the profile of people tracing using the electoral
roll and other search facilities found on the Tracesmart website.
Whitley says "I started Searching for a Memory in memory of my
late mother-in-law, who had been estranged from my husband for
34 years. I found her 11 months before she died, and thought as
a tribute to her I would continue tracing to help other people
find their loved ones. Over the years I would like to think I
have had a great deal of success. I have used various resources
during this time, and through a recommendation from a friend,
began to use Tracesmart for their excellent address search facility,
there is no better search facility available online"
search engine holds 90 million personal profiles, and have
recently added a further 1.7m dates of birth to the database which
further enhances the simplicity of a people search. Tracesmart's

that exists, our relationship has flourished over the past 6 months,
and Tracesmart are proud to be sponsoring such a worthy voluntary
tracing service. The team that Gill leads is dedicated to assisting
those who contact them hoping to find their missing person. Together
with their knowledge of family history and unlimited access to
Tracesmart's services and products Gill and her team will be able
to facilitate even more people"
