Next, let's look at finding people who might not be
online, and move the search to online phone books (AKA white page directories).
- 411 White Pages
will search for someone's e-mail address. You can search by first
and last name, or conduct a more in-depth search by using City, State,
Country, Domain, and Company. You can choose to search by any of the
combination of the fields. 411 also supports a power search -- one
feature of which you can use is the "smart name" function, which recognizes
that Bob is the same as Robert. In addition, 411 has a yellow page
search. 411 will also let you search for a
number. You can enter just a surname, a full name, or address
information. Results are displayed in a list, and you can obtain address
information by clicking on the individual you are interested in. If
you are searching for someone in Canada, try Canada
White pages lets you search by first name, last name, city, and
state. Results are listed alphabetically, and by clicking on the More
button you can view a map of the area, find out what businesses are
nearby, send a card, and even get driving directions to that address!
- You can locate businesses as well using the Yellow
Page functions. I found that by choosing the yellow pages, then the
by Category button, and entering in a city and state name I could
list all the cemeteries in the surrounding area.
