Of course, you can also find plenty of bearers on social media. On Facebook, you can perform an exact search using keywords like "Zinaida" + "Tbilisi" or simply "ზინაიდა". Be sure not to search for just "Zinaida", because then you will be overwhelmed with bearers from other countries.

If you don't have an account on LinkedIn, you can go to Google and do an exact search for "Zinaida" + "ge.linkedin". That should show all the bearers that allow for their LinkedIn account to be available on Google.
