Our country has become a very mobile and transient society.
Years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for someone to be born and live in the same town their entire life. Nowadays people move from state-to-state at the drop of a hat. Parents may be on one coast, and the kids and grandkids on another coast.
I’m one of those people who has lived in the same town my entire life. I’ve watched my friends leave, one by one. Some of my high school friends I’ve kept in contact with, while others have drifted away.
I did go away to college and had a roommate and friends from all over the country. I often think I’d like to reconnect with my roommate and friends to find out what has transpired in those almost 40 years since we’ve first met.
Now there’s a site called MyLife where you can find everyone all in one place. MyLife uses sources from Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr and other sites to try to locate everyone you knew at one point in your life.
I tried to locate my roommate from college, but would have had to have a membership to pursue the search further.
If there’s someone you’d like to connect with – a childhood friend, stray family member, college buddy, or the one that got away – give this site a try.
