Release Summary: Missing person Blog to be launched by Gill Whitley
in collaboration with Tracesmart with the aim of helping reuniting
people with their loved ones.
Release Body: Tracesmart
is to launch a new website on behalf of 'Searching for a Memory',
a voluntary tracing service run by Gill Whitley. The organisation
is sponsored by Tracesmart, the leading online people search facility,
and consists of Gill and a team of three other tracers working
from home; their aim is to help find relatives or friends for
people who have no idea where to start.
Gill, the founder of the service,
has been tracing families since 1998 and since then has helped
thousands of people hoping to find relatives. The new
blog style website will allow visitors to share with Gill as she
posts her success stories, and post comments or questions live
on the site allowing her to reply personally.
The blog has been created as part
of the collaboration between Tracesmart and the 'Searching for
a Memory' team, an alliance which began early in 2008, and has
been flourishing ever since. The union was formed with the aim
of becoming an exceptional team in the people search arena, mixing
the experience of the research team together with Tracesmart's
extensive online people search facility. Tracesmart's Missing Person campaign
launched in February of this year, with the intention of raising
the profile of its vast electoral
roll search facility, resulted in countless enquiries and
in some cases, the information offered by the person searching
was very limited, consequently it became beneficial to refer the
trace to Gill and her team.
commented, "I started Searching for a Memory in recognition 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, but none better than Tracesmart's excellent
online address search and people
search facility." Gill added, "The facility makes tracing so much
easier compared to the earlier days and can very easily be used
Tracesmart's Communications Manager,
Owen Roberts, commented, "The 'Searching for a Memory' website
has been created by our in-house technical team to help Gill,
we are very pleased to be able to facilitate and help Gill and
her team because of the excellent voluntary service they provide.
I anticipate many people will interact with the new website, and
enquire with Gill for help with any Missing Person search, with
the hope people will also share their success stories or questions
with each other on the blog."
