 Electoral Roll Archives

Searching for your roots or just friends? Find the library that covers the area in question. Ask for the Electoral Roll Archives to find other family members at the address last known. Find out who was living at a particular address in a given year. You may be charged for the information in some instances.
 Telephone Searches

Brilliant site for searching for lost and loved ones in the UK. Full first name shown plus middle initial if stated. At they publish the whole of the Electoral Roll and also the BT DQ database too. Anyone logging on to the site gets some free searches then is it a minimum amount charged for further research. More than well worth trying if you are stuck because telephone directories only show initials and gives the full first name.

The link to finding, with luck, the people you want to search for in the UK. Only put in the surname because more often than not the female in the family registers the telephone!! You need to be able to give an area to search. There are many instances nowadays where the telephone is ex-directory or on cable. In the UK at the moment no cable numbers can be accessed.

Telephone directories for all around the world. Bear in mind a lot of them only have yellow pages but at least give them a try.
 E-mail Searches
Very useful search engines for finding an email address. Not very up to date - worth trying nevertheless. I, personally, have not found more than one person by this method because people are changing email addresses so very often.
