I have compiled some information that I use on a daily basis when searching for information. This information is free.
When searching these sites you must remember that not all information is up to date and maybe old however it is a good place to start your research.
When searching for an individual through a directory assistance service I begin my search through two basic webistes: Whitepages.com and http://www.addresses.com/ . I have found addresses.com to be of help when whitepages.com fails me. You can search names, phone numbers, addresses and business information. Have you ever received a phone call and you didn't recognize the number? Just jump on to one of those websites and it may help you figure out who is calling you.
If you are not having any luck with those sites you can always search and address or phone number in Google. Many times the phone number or address is associated with an individual or the address has been on the market.
Social media has grown so rapidly that you can most likely find the person you are looking for through Facebook.com or Myspace.com. If you search a name though facebook and do not get the results you are looking for try searching for an associate of the that person (friend, sister, mother, etc..). Once you find the associate, search their friends for the person you are looking for. I have found many individuals by piecing information together about known associates.
Myspace in opinion is no longer a forum that is used as much as Facebook but it is always worth a look. After searching for a name you can always narrow down your results by age, city, and gender. Even if people don't use their account anymore there is still old information present that may be useful.
These people searching techniques are to be used in a responsible manner.
