    a fantastic reference point ,if you moved away from the city of your child hood . In my case the people concerned had married but had stayed in the family home so i already had an address ( thanks to goole earth) the old phone book had the address and a four digit phone number which by itself was useless anyway i worked out the code for the area and was able to contact one person who was able to furnish the other contact details
