|You know the Address - Who lives there now?|
This search was much easier when we "all" were on AT&T or one of the BELLs. Now a free Google search (and even some fee searches) are likely to give outdated information.|
* Yahoo - search with the "address" plus city and state; get an area map - but no names
* YellowPages - click "Address". If you don't get a result with a complete street address, leave off the number to find neighbors' names, addresses, phone numbers
* Zip codes for the USA and Canada
*TIP: Sometimes you can find where someone lives from an on-line obituary of one of their close relatives. Search the SSDI to find the town where the deceased person lived, and check obituaries from their local online newspaper.
