In Odessa, everyone knows everything about everyone - it was thought so not long ago. However, social and political upheavals have done their dirty work: now in the city by the sea “everyone is deeply concerned only with themselves,” as Aunt Sonya would say. However, do not despair: if an Odessa citizen wants to be found, he will not hide for a long time.
If you know not only the surname, but also the name and patronymic of the wanted person, contact the address bureau of Odessa (Sofievskaya street, 20). However, you will be able to provide this information only with the consent of the Odessa citizen. Draw up a statement, indicating in it information about yourself, and pass it on to the employees of the address service, who, in turn, after the end of the search, will contact the department of internal affairs of the district where this person lives. The police officers will notify him that you are looking for him, and then he will decide whether to show himself to you or not.
Purchase the latest edition of the Odessa telephone directory. If this person has a home phone number, then you will be able to see him very soon, having previously called and made an appointment.
Useful information can also be found on sites that provide people search services: free (poisk.goon.ru) or paid (http://www.poisk.boxmail.biz). There are also telephone reference Internet services (www.09service.ru or http://newtel.org.ua). And by filling in the fields of the search form on the page http://tapix.ru/odessa, you can find out not only the phone number, but also the home address.
Go to social networking sites. Enter in the search fields the name of the country ("Ukraine"), city ("Odessa") and the last name of the person you are looking for. If he is not registered in any of them, try to find out from his fellow citizens any information about him or create a thematic group dedicated to finding this person.
Visit sites such as http://community.odessaglobe.com (The Globe of Odessa) or http://www.odessitclub.org (The Worldwide Club of Odessa Citizens). Chat on the forums, create a new topic dedicated to finding this person, or add an ad to an existing one. In addition, the "World Club of Odessa residents" also has a special service for searching people by last name or phone number. Fill out the proposed form, and you can even find out his ICQ number, if, of course, he has one.
Register on the portal “World of Golden Pages. All Odessa”(http://mercury.odessa.ua) and place your ad in the“Services”section in the“Looking for”category. And, of course, you can place ads about searching for a person in the “old-fashioned way” - in paper media (newspapers, magazines).
