Name and Address Search

Finding People Online

Locate-a-Person-for-Free1.jpgWhenever people ask me this question, I tell them about my favorite name, phone and address search tool — Infospace. At the InfoSpace home page, click on White Pages then you can key in the last name, first name, city and state to start your search for someone in the USA. Here’s are some helpful tips to speed up your InfoSpace searching:

Don’t enter a first name, or try using just a first initial. The person may be listed under a nickname or a spouse’s name.




If a very specific search fails, try leaving one or more of the fields blank.
If you’re after someone outside the USA, Infospace also has listings for Canada, United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain and a page with links to other phone directories around the world. Click on “World Directories” at the Infospace home page to get there. Finding BusinessesTo do a search for a Business, click on the Yellow Pages tab at the Infospace home page. You can enter a business name or type, and the city, state to search in. The same tips apply here – sometimes being vague is better.

Reverse Lookups

In addition to white (individual) and yellow (business) page listings for the USA and many other countries, InfoSpace offers reverse lookups on Phone Numbers, Street Addresses, Email Addresses, and Area Codes. This means you can find a person’s name and address if all you know is the phone number. Or you could find someone’s name and phone number if you know just the street address. From the InfoSpace home page, click on search by phone or near an address.

This can come in handy if you’re browsing the classifieds. Imagine this scenario… You see a car advertised in your local newspaper, and you’d like to know more about it. Just do a reverse phone number search at Infospace and you now know the name and address of the person selling the car. You could even drive by and have a look at the car, since Infospace also provides a map and driving directions.





Get To Know The Neighbors

Here’s a little trick I stumbled into: Infospace can tell you the names of everyone on your street. Just omit the street number on the Search by Phone/Address Lookup screen, and it will return ALL of the listings for that street.

When you find a person through Infospace, whether it’s via a regular name search or reverse lookup, Infospace also provides handy links to business, government offices, and a city guide for the city where the person lives.

Address Search By Phone Number

Address Search By Phone Number

How to Look Up People for FreeHave you found yourself needing to do an address search by phone number? If you have a telephone number it is possible to quickly go online and get the name and address of the telephone number owner. This new technology has just become available in the last few years, and really makes life easier when we need to get information fast. It’s a quick process to find address from phone number information by doing a reverse lookup.




There are a lot of reasons you may need to get the address from a phone number. Maybe you have been set up for a blind date and just given the number of your date. If you want to see where they live first, this service could be just what you need.

Prank calls are another situation that may have you wishing you had the address of the nuisance caller. If it is just the neighbor kid down the street, you can probably quickly stop the calls by paying a visit to the parents. If it something scarier and more harassing you will want to pass the information on to the police and let them deal with the calls.




Or, possibly you feel your spouse is acting suspicious and fear he may be cheating. Not only will a reverse lookup give you the address of this person, but also the name. While I don’t recommend going to the house of someone your spouse may be cheating with, having all the information you need to get answers is important when dealing with something this serious.

Reverse lookup telephone number companies exist online and will allow you to easily do an address search by phone number. There is a small cost for these directories because the companies have to pay the cellular carriers to have access to their records. The small price is well worth the service and answers you will receive.
