List of Resources to Help Find People Online




Do you want to get in touch with old classmates? Or maybe find a long-lost family member? In a world permeated by data-powered technology, there are plenty of resources to help. But not all websites work the same way or offer the same options, so where to start? How to ensure that your information remains safe while searching? Scam websites are all over the internet, and they can seem harmless and very professional, so you always need to proceed with caution. Depending on your budget and how much information you need, here are some of the safest choices:

  1. Instant online background search sites. These can provide information such as known addresses, criminal records, and an analysis of their social media profiles. Usually, a name and location are enough. If you have trouble deciding which service is the best for you, visit,read user reviews, and compare features and pricing alternatives. Remember that these services only have access to publicly-available information.
  2. Search Engines, especially Google, which offers advanced search features. Be careful to verify your information at each step, because it is easy to follow wrong leads.
  3. Social Media. It can be used in two different ways. First, you can research someone’s name and see if the person that you are looking for pops up. Because there are billions of social media users, many profiles can be linked to the same name. Anything else you know is useful (the school they attended, their professional activity, or the town in which they live) to verify that you are looking at the right profile. The other option is to create a post stating that you are searching for a particular person and share it through social media platforms. Someone may see your post and guide you in the right direction to continue your search.
  4. Public Records: PACER is a site in which you can review federal public records. You can also visit state or county sites to find out if they offer online access to their court records. While the information may be outdated, you can get more data to continue your investigation.

While it is fairly easy to find someone online, you need to consider some important facts:

  • Respect people’s privacy. If someone cannot be found after a few days of searching, there is a chance that they don’t want to be found. Respect their wishes, as, in some cases, their personal safety can be at risk. Never agree to use services from agencies or people offering to go outside the law.
  • Understand that you are not allowed to use people’s online information indiscriminately. If you have any doubts about this, consult an attorney.
  • Be careful with your own information while searching. There are scam websites that can collect your personal information and use if for identity theft. No reputable site will ask for personal details as your social security number or bank account details.
  • As you are searching, you might someone get searched. Be mindful of what you share online, even in your private social media profiles.

Online information is easily available if you know how to search. While there are limits to what you can find, and the methods you can use, your chances of finding someone using online methods are high. A common problem is when people follow false leads and end up with a lot of information that gets them nowhere. This is why the good idea is to keep a spreadsheet of all your records, compare them with new information, and eliminate duplicate entries. Compare, contrast, be careful, and remain on legal grounds. Ask for expert help if, at any point, you feel lost or have doubts.

Bringing clean water – Christopher Kenny’s Preservation Earth Project




Science plainly shows that a human can survive three weeks without food, yet most individuals cannot survive three to four days without water! Dehydration sets in, and the person will go into shock and become vegetative even if they continue to breathe. In other words, water is an essential requirement. A living thing cannot thrive without it. Nonetheless, it is a horrifying truth that billions of people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 

In developed countries, when everything from technology to luxury is available, receiving clean water at home is as ‘natural’ as breathing fresh air. Most individuals in advanced nations may not pay much attention to it, but this is not the case for the rest of the globe. Many countries continue to lack access to clean water sources or water appropriate for human use. Safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene at home should not be limited to the wealthy or those who live in cities. These are some of the most fundamental human health requirements, and all countries must ensure everyone has access to them.

The Preservation Earth Project (PEP) made its way to Tsaile, New Mexico. Over time, uranium mining, fracking, and pesticide abuse damaged the water supply, resulting in a high occurrence of numerous illnesses. Approximately 35% of the Navajo people do not have access to flowing water, and some must go to a remote location to fill barrels with water from a polluted local spring. 

There is no doubt that climate change is boosting storm strength. Recent natural catastrophes have heightened the need for groups to step up and give support, answers, and relief to individuals affected by such natural disasters. The Preservation Earth Project is a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and solutions to help society transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

Making clean water available to everyone

In 2012, Kenny founded The Preservation Earth Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It provides assistance, education, and alternative energy solutions to help society shift to renewable energy. It was involved and aided Haiti several times after the 2010 earthquake, providing portable solar electricity for water purification and medical facilities. In 2020, the business devised a solution for the Navajos’ contaminated water source. They collaborated with engineers and local officials to build, produce, and install a solar-powered water filtration system for the Navajo people of Tsaile, New Mexico. Other activities have included providing portable solar power to the “Cajun Navy” for rescue and clean-up in areas devastated by the 2015-2021 hurricane season in Louisiana. 

The project designed, delivered, and installed a solar-powered filtration system that will provide clean drinking water to the local Navajo community 365 days a year for many years to come. Several more initiatives are in the works to provide safe drinking water to Native American communities on the Navajo Reservation.

President’s letters of gratitude

President Jimmy Carter sent Chris two heartfelt letters encouraging him to continue his charitable work. He suggested calling Habitat for Humanity and asking if they were interested in collaborating on a few projects. He and Kenny both helped out at the charity.
