Web white pages

websites that provide searchable databases of individual email addresses and other "people-finding" tools. They typically include residential telephone numbers and street addresses. However, unlike phone company white pages, there is no single source for this information, some of them charge a small fee, and you may have to try several sources. There is no guarantee that a person's email address is available in any of these directories. Following are some of the popular white pages sites. See Web yellow pages and Web search engines. (fee-based) (fee-based)
