Finding phone numbers and addresses of living relatives

Ensure that you have asked all of your immediate relatives, such as parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles if they know the addresses and phone numbers of living relatives -- perhaps they have an old telephone book, address book, or Christmas card list tucked away somewhere. They may also know of neighbors or friends who might have the information you are looking for.

If you have living relatives who, unbeknownst to you, are doing genealogy research and have submitted files to the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you can get their names through the Ancestral File on the FamilySearch computer. All you need to do is look up your common ancestors in the Ancestral File.
