In order to find an old classmate, there are a number of resources on the Internet, including classmates.com and reunion.com. Go to a high school to check out the alumni directory with help from a life and relationship coach in this free video on finding classmates.
Hi I'm Donna Barnes, life and relationship coach here in New York City and the author of It's All About You. In this clip we'll talk about how to find someone you went to high school with. And I think the easiest way now is there's a couple of really big websites that have gotten involved in trying to help people and the first one that comes to mind is classmates.com. There's also reunion.com and a few other things like. So if you go to one of those sites, the first thing you want to do is setup your own profile so that anybody else who's searching could potentially find you and contact you and go to your actual high school and see if they have a website, most high school do now and see if there's anyway that they have an alumni directory or something such as that that you might be able to get in touch with and if you can't find somebody specifically that you're looking for, if you remember who their good friends were, try looking up them and then maybe through that friend they can let you know where that person is. So the Internet is always a great way to do that if you live still near the high school you could certainly go and checkout the alumni directory or ask people that you know, if you're still in touch with anybody that you went to high school, start calling them, it's a good excuse to talk to old friends and say hey, whatever happened to such and such? Do you know where they are now? And network a little bit, it's a great way to get in touch with old friends anyway. You could look on Facebook, you could look on MySpace and even just try Googling them, you never know what you're going to come up, a lot of people have blogs nowadays and things like that. So I think the first thing to do is probably check out classmates.com or reunion.com and see actually if it's around one of your 5 year, 10 year, 20 year, 25 year reunions. Check with your school and see if there's going to be a reunion that you can go to soon, that'll be the easiest way. This is Donna Barnes from New York City.
