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 phone 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 411.
  • Infospace 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 Business by Category button, and entering in a city and state name I could list all the cemeteries in the surrounding area.
