How can I find out where someone is located?
I need to find out where two people are located, not their exact address, just a general idea of where they're located, from a couple of emails I have received. Can anyone help me figure this out?

According to my view, the first one originated in Georgetown, the second may be somewhere in Virginia?

Not my field of expertise, but that is based on the IP addresses I think are the salient ones.

It is extremely hard to make an accurate guess, much less a true statement. If they used their ISP's email addresses, such as username@mn.rr.com, then it would be fairly easy to get a general idea, because the originating IP would be local (and the domain could also give something away, as in the example above).

If they used a different address though, such as username@gmail.com, it would be impossible to track them down because the IP would be Google's servers.

I did these using the IP address and pasted the address in the "IP Address to locate" box.

But I am not good at reading the email headers so don't know how good this info is I posted.

Interesting site hewee, and it gives quite a different result to samspade!

I think the IPs you used were the salient ones.

Wonder why there is such a difference between www.samspade.org and geobytes?

I like it to see what loop comcast moves me around on and right now I am in Sacramento 19 miles away. They switch between Citrus Heights and Sacramento al the time but then they stared a new one in Antelope I was on a long time.
