||LOCATING LOST CLASSMATE|
planning Web site renewed due to move from AOL. We now have our
own domain name: excelsiorpilots.com.
This page for information and
links having to do with locating classmates is now separate from
suggestions on planning your reunion. November 1, 2008
Your best source of information is the class itself. Your first letter to members with known addresses should inquire about other classmates.
People Finder Driven Search. You will know it's time to search public records when leads from your own class start to dwindle. The purpose and timing are outlined in the Reunion Planning Timeline. You may find this new approach useful. Locate the city and state for your classmate using the People Finder index or Anybirthday, then search the other sites for home address or telephone. Repeat this process for possible family members from index.
Finding classmates by searching categories of Web sites. The People Finder Database is not current. Once you have identified the general location of your classmate, you will need to follow up with other records. Six groups are described, and searchable databases linked for the following property records and vital records.
EXCELSIOR'S FAMILY TREE
The names and class
affiliations of many Excelsiorites
and their families, living or dead, have been entered into a genealogy
type Web site. Marriage certificates of women alumni are also part of
this 5,000 database. This restricted access site, called MyFamily,
stores and presents the information in the form used by
pedigree charts and family history sheets. Excelsior reunion committee
researchers can learn the names of
family members, then contact them to get the latest information about
their missing classmates. These family trees are not open to the
general public. Reunion leaders should contact Grant Hovey, email:
email@example.com for access. Lavon "Bonnie"
Jones Brady, Class of 1948,
worked hard for more than two years entering this important information.
The location and description of important property, marriage, and divorce records in the Southern California area are listed in a tabular format. A comparison of Social Security, state, and county death records can be helpful.
|LOCATING WOMEN CLASSMATES When the time comes to search for your women classmates, marriage certificates contain many leads. These documents further identify your classmates and provide important facts about parents, and others who know their location. A blank Marriage Certificate is now available for printing out and copying.|
