    I need your help finding people. UPDATED with PICs:


    Not long ago I found an object in a park in an Atlanta.
    Its a large item and quite valuable. (Id rather not post it up at this time for obvious reasons)
    It has an engraving on it with two names.
    Elise is one and the other is Winston.
    It says Elise to Winston. Maybe it was a gift? Anyway, Id like to find these people and return it. I guess its Winston's.

    So I have two first names and no last names and the city of Atlanta.

    Ive been trying for hours to find a way to find these people and hoped you guys could help.

    Thanks

    Was it a shallow find? If so, you might put it on Craigs List lost and found with the names only. If they can describe it and where it was lost then you have your folks. Good luck!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    You might also list what you can in the 'Lost and Found' area of the local paper; similar to Craig's listing.
    "Identify and claim". Another suggestion is to notify that park's administrative office of your find so they'll have a way to contact you if they get an inquiry.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Well the thing I have going for me is that the names are not heard so much. Elise and Winston are not common names and if they are married or related then they could maybe be found, I'm hoping.

    It wasnt a shallow find. I suspect its been there for a number of years.

    I was hoping someone knew of a good way to search for people or a couple by first name only, within a certain city.

    Re: I need your help finding people.

    not first and last name ? like smith , winston --as you say the names are older type odd first names (which would greatly cut down the pool of possibles) -- with as little as you got to go on , its going to be fairly hard -- with only "elsie to winston "* the item could be craigs listed * like so -- item marked "elsie to winston" found at so and so park --owner must indentfy item and either be elsie or winston or be able to prove relastionship to them to claim item - wish to return to proper owner.

    Maybe if there is a marriage record database you could search it using the first two names.
    Good luck!

    Re: I need your help finding people.

    This is a long shot but try Winston A. White and his wife Elise L. White that live in Athens GA. They have lived in Atlanta, GA in the past. I will send their address and phone via PM. They are both in their early 40s so if the piece seems to be antique it may not be them. Let us know if it turns out to be them.

    Re: I need your help finding people.

    when I am looking for people in my area I use a iPhone app called Poynt http://poynt.com/ it has several features but it might help use the people finder... its a free app.

    there might be an android version I dunno about that though.

    I used People Finder to find the Elise/Winston connection, last name and places lived then went to Anywho for the address and phone information. It does help that the names were rather unique and it was lost in a park rather then a beach where people vacation so may not be from the area.

    I just hope it turns out to be them.
