Start Family Tracing

Tracing your family is simple with Living Relative Search; you just need to know the name of the person you’re looking for. Our instant results give you the details you need to help you connect with your lost relatives. Good luck with your search!


It's easy to get going; just type in the name of the family member you're looking for, and click search. The minimum information needed is an initial, and a surname. Digger - our trusty helper - will then retrieve your free results preview. If you want to access full detailed information and enjoy unlimited free result previews, you can purchase a credit package to suit your needs.

Please note, entering a popular name such as Adam Smith may retrieve more results than our system is able to display. You can refine your search by entering further information such as an initial or city/town.

View the How To Guide to take you through the search step-by-step.

Free search results

Every day you can conduct up to 10 searches, which will provide you with ten free results preview pages. This is basic information, which is accessed from the phonebook. You'll be given the following details, where available: name, city/town and telephone number. You can enjoy unlimited free result previews, once you've purchased a credit package.
