How can you find a full mailing address if you only have part of the address?


Quick Answer

One way to find a full mailing address from a partial one is to do an Internet search. For instance, using Google Maps, type in the part of the address you do have and review the results, which usually start with the state you’re in.

The more specific the information in the partial address – for instance, a street name and number and a city name – the more likely you are to find the full address. With this information, you can go to your local post office and ask for the full address. If you have a partial street address and the names of city and state, try “Look Up a Zip Code” on the United States Post Service website, usps.com, and other sites such as YellowBook.com.

You can also try looking on social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook, especially if you have at least a partial name. Many people publish their mailing addresses in their profiles. If you have more concrete information, try public records sites such as SearchSystems.net. Bear in mind that many people don’t publish their addresses online if at all possible. In addition, others provide false information.
