    Know your neighbors

    Ah, the Interwebs... I was actually glad to use this, as many of my neighbors have names that are hard for me to remember.

    We have a neighborhood phonebook that has listings by name, and another set of listing by address.

    This site is reasonably up to date.

    It had an amazing collection of neighboors who are long dead or moved away years ago and no mention of many of us who are long time residents.

    I wonder why certain houses have no name. Makes me wonder where these records come from.

    Good question. On my street, several houses are listed under the names of children, without mention of parents. That should eliminate real estate records.
    Pretty good job of matching correct family names though.

    It still lists George W. Bush at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    Interesting - our address is not listed in the phone book, but both address & phone number listed here!

    Our son is the person listed at our house, plus a long ago landline number. Maybe school records?
