Dear Dick, is an excellent website to use when you are trying to locate 
address information for individuals. This site allows you to search for people 
by name, phone number, and/or address.

Additionally on this website there is a “find a zip code” link, .

For future reference, is also a great research tool if you want 
to find a business, area code, or email address.  

Additional Websites that may interest you: – “It’s the yellow pages. Electrified.”  Helps you find people, 
products, and businesses.

U.S. Postal Service – find a zip code link

Search Terms Used: 
Find a zip code
Find an address

I hope this information is helpful.  Good Luck!

You may want to try one of the following services:

Or any of those listed at:

In particular, you may want to go to your local telephone company's Web site, 
where they will likely have a link to provide Web-based phone/address lookup. 
For example, one of the largest local telephone companies in Texas, US West, 
offers such as service:

You can use to lookup the 
zip code for any street address in the US.

As an alternative, you may try using dialing 411, which offers address 
information in many states for a fee of less than $1, or you may want to check 
a variety of local telephone books that are likely to be available at your 
local library. 

There are more costly "People Finding" services available for the right price, 
but these are targeted at a market willing to pay hundreds or even thousands of 
dollars to find a lost loved one, etc.

This URL will connect you to a person finder where you can enter a last name 
and first name and city and state and you will be returned the address of the 
person in question.  Note that the street number only shows up if you click on 
the name.  I find it helpful to only use the first initial unless I am sure of 
the first name.  For example, type S for Steve or Steven or Stephen unless you 
are sure you know how it is listed.

Hope this helps.

You might try: 
You only have to enter the name you are looking for once and then choose which white page directory you want to search.
You might also try:
That site also lists several white page directories.
Thought these additional sites might help.

The website I use to find mailing address is .  It is run 
by AT&T, and I have found it to be the most complete and accurate of the online 
mailing address databases.

This may be superfluous, as I'm unaware of the exact situation you find 
yourself in, but perhaps you could contact the individuals concerened by other 

Assuming this is a party for friends, you surely have other contact methods, 
and can simply ask them for their addresses.

Failing this, the comments already submitted are of a high calibre and should 
serve your needs well.
