If you want to find someone by name and birth date then you have come to the right place. You may be looking for a long lost friend, relative or simply want to find out more information about someone – for a date or new friend maybe?
In this guide I assume you already know the person’s name and you also have their date of birth at hand for your reverse birthday lookup.
If you don’t know the person’s name then I strongly recommend you start by finding out the name of the person. If by same strange reason you are here and don’t know the person’s birthday then you may want to read about how to find a person’s date of birth first.
Here is a list of recommendations to find someone by name and birthday;
Use Google People Search
Well your first option is trying to type the name and birth date of the person you are trying to look up. For example Betty Johnson 10 October 1980.
As you can see on the image, Google returned some results and the example here shows that the first one is not from 1980. Before you get shocked by the fact that this particular Betty has passed you click the “must include 1980” – because this one is not the one you are looking for.
If we force Google to include 1980 in the search results we get one who died in 1980. I tried to force google to find a page with the information as shown below – with parentheses.
Evidently Google is not able to help with this search so we can move on to other options. But before you give up, try using different forms in the date e.g. 10/10/1980 or 10/10/80 or dashes or swap the information around.
Use social media to find someone by name and DOB
Do you know that there are nearly 3 billion people using social media globally. This basically means the number of people who have most likely shared their personal details publicly.
It is true that social media allows people to hide certain information and sites like Facebook have been accused of Privacy abuse but the fact is, if you are serious about trying to find a person then sites like Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter & Instagram offer the best chance for you to do that free of charge.
The difference on social media is that you may need to search using the name and then going through the returned results. Go to about of the person and then see if they have their birthdate listed there (on their profile) and then see if it matches the one you have.
Facebook does provide its users with way to hide their date of birth from the public or to show it to specific people so there is a chance you will not be able to confirm if the person returned in the results is the actual one you are looking for – unless of course you have other details about them other than just the birth date.
Use Free People search sites
Your last option to find someone by name and birthdate is to use people search engines. These sites offer a much better option because they search the deep web where personal information is availed by government agencies through free public records laws. Additionally, the sites also source their information from people’s social media profiles across the entire web.
Note that 90% of these sites will profess to offer a a free service only for you to find someone by name and date of birth wherein they only offer a free search but not free results.
You will get to the site, and you will key in the name and date of birth of the person you are trying to find and when you hit the search button, they will redirect you to a sales page where you will be asked to subscribe or pay for the report.
The good thing is, while most of these sites will charge you for the results, most will often provide some free information – with the view to entice you to buy the full report. So you may use that bit of information about the person to advance your search. Read how to find someone free of charge to read more about this.
For example, DOBSearch.com has a feature that allows you to enter a lot of different information including the date of birth.
Learn more about general people search
To be honest there aren’t so many sites that offer a reverse birthday search online. Most will just offer you a straight forward people search. This is why you need to have more information about the person than just the birth date. However way you got hold of the birthday, you could possibly try to source some more information.
So when you get the results from the general people searches, you can then use the birthday listed there to make sure that it is indeed the person you are trying to locate or find more information about. This is because typically there are many people who share the same name, so you can turn the birthday details into an exclusive filter.
There are various articles on this site that will help enhance your search and also help you on your way to learning how to find someone by name and birthdate free of charge.
