People search company offer Father's Day gift
on: May 22, 2009, 8:17 am
Tracesmart, the online people search providers,
will be joining in the Father's Day celebrations on 21st June
this year, by helping families to find relatives. Tracesmart
are offering visitors the chance to win a £100 Marks & Spencer
gift card to put towards a reunion party, if they find their missing
family member using the Tracesmart database.
year, the company ran a hugely successful 'Missing Person' campaign,
and researchers at Tracesmart were able to reunite more than one
hundred individuals. A number of those who contacted Tracesmart
for assistance are now in contact with their fathers or children.
They will be looking forward to Father's Day this year, and spending
the day together for the first time. Tracesmart's campaign will
aim to raise the profile of online searches and demonstrate how
simple people searches can be, as Owen Roberts, Tracesmart's Communications
"Here at Tracesmart,
we realise that some people will need extra encouragement to kick
start their search. So we want to offer our full support and assistance
to those people who are constantly putting off this important
trace, which could change their lives."
One of the families Tracesmart
recently reunited after 30 years apart was Debra and her father
Daniel. Debra's parents were young when they had her and her brother,
and must have found it difficult as the marriage dissolved and
Debra's mother took her young family to Scotland. After years
of wondering how to find her father, Debra found Tracesmart online.
Debra contacted the Missing Person campaign team and asked for
help to find her father, who she had not had contact with since
she was two years old. She filled out a form, and included all
the information she knew about him. The initial people search
found no definite results, as her father's name is not unusual.
The researcher decided to find Daniel's siblings, so a birth
search was conducted and a sister, Lucy, was found. It was
necessary to perform a further search, using marriage records
to find Lucy's married name. The contact details for Debra's aunt
were then located via an electoral roll search.
Debra subsequently wrote a letter to her aunt, and within days
she heard a response.
The family have now been reunited
and Debra says "I love being able to talk to my Dad now, and he
is glad that I found him, so thank you Tracesmart, as I couldn't
have done it without you."
The Father's Day campaign kicks
off on Thursday 21st of May, with the winner of the £100 Marks
and Spencer gift card being chosen on Wednesday 17th June and
the result being announced the following day.
