SNGF from Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings
Hey there, genea-philes – it’s Saturday Night — time for more Genealogy Fun!!
I’m always on the lookout for websites that can find living people. I read about Spokeo this week and thought that I would try it out.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) Go to Spokeo – www.spokeo.com and put in your name (or any name).
2) See what Spokeo says about you. Is it accurate?
3) Share what you want to share with us in a blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a status or comment on Facebook, or in a Stream post on Google Plus.
Here is what I found out about me Some very correct things and some not so much!
There is only one person with my name combination. I don’t know if that is good or bad! I can truly say I am unique!
Phone, Address, Location, email are correct as far as I can tell with all the **** that block the numbers and letters the identify me for sure.
Early 50′s check
own house check ( almost, bank still owns it technically )
worth of home, is low to what state says it’s worth, but I bet I couldn’t sell it for more than this now.
High School check
Family of four…. gee did I borrow the youngest two? Only the two oldest children are listed. LOL!

Loves to travel yep

This was an interesting exercise Randy, wondering if there is a way to block this information LOL but someone else would just gather it again… probably a exercise in futility!
Try it folks! Might be surprised what you might find! I know I found a cousin of my husband years ago when I did a search on my name. He has a 3 rd great Aunt named Julia Hogston :D.
