How do I find my previous addresses?

Does anyone know where I can get a listing of my previous addresses? I pulled my credit reports, but they only have the last two listed. I figure that there's gotta be somewhere I can find this info for free...

Previous employers.

Mom (I moved around a lot and mine still has all my addresses).

It might be worthwhile having a mortgage broker pull a tri-merged report. It might have different data than the ones you pull yourself. Just curious but why do you want your old addresses?

For the next time this comes up, you could start writing your address in an address book and keep that with you. (I'm an Army brat. My mom kept a log of all the addresses they have had in their marriage...I think they are at address 32 right now. I'm on address 24....and I have all of them in a list, with the dates I lived there.)

Look through your records...tax returns have your address on them...you should have the last 7 years of those. Old bills, magazines, letters you night have saved will have your address on the envelopes.

Ask your parents. They might have kept records of all your mailing addresses.

If you can find the location on a map, google maps can help you get an actual address (but not things like apartment numbers, etc). If you still keep in touch with friends who knew you when you were living at that address, they might be able to help figure out the actual address.

I kept all mine written down (I have it filed with other personal info like my birth certificate). I've needed it when applying for bar membership in various states.

Did you have roommates at these previous addresses? They may still have or remember the addresses where you lived together.

Yeah, tax returns are helpful for this--assuming you haven't move more than once in a given year.

Getting copies of all of your old tax returns from the IRS (suggested in a previous post) is an excellent suggestion and the best place to start.

If that leaves any gaps, think like a detective. Who else has been keeping track of your whereabouts all these years? Here are some suggestions

The DMVs -- Every time you got a new drivers license or renewed your old one, and every time you registered or renewed registration on your vehicle you had to give the DMV your current address.

Your previous employers -- All of them knew where you lived at the time you worked for them. They probably still have you somewhere in their files.

Your alumni association(s) -- They always seemed to be able to find you when they wanted you to have their magazine or try to hit you up for a contribution, right?

The schools you attended -- Like employers, they always knew where you lived when you were in school there and still have your records on file.

Credit card companies -- They always were able to send you a bill each month, right? Go through your wallet. Look for the "member since <year>" information on the card. Pick the card with the earliest "member since" year. They should have records on you from that year to the present, which should include the addresses where they sent their bills to you.

Medical records and health insurance companies -- they always knew where to send you their bills, too. Every time you saw your doctor or shrink the receptionist asked you, "Are you still living at <address>?" and updated the info if you had moved since your last visit.

If this leaves any gaps, try Googleing yourself. You never know what might come up when you do that. Write down the cities/towns you've lived in over the years. There may be municipal records that might help you get an address.

If all else fails ... Remember that we live in the age of zero privacy. You can find out just about anything about anyone. The cost of getting the dirt on yourself or anyone else may be cheaper than you realize. When you Google yourself, check the sponsored ad links offering you more detailed information (including addresses, phone numbers, criminal records, etc.) on anyone you searched for. Most dossiers that you can get on yourself or anyone else that interests you only cost about 25.

there is a service called accurint that law enforcement officials, attorneys, and private investigators have access to. they can trace your history back for years and years. call a PI and ask for a print out. its comprehensive but not free. should be about 75-100 bucks.

Another possibility -- just like address books of your friends and relatives, some of them may have email programs with stored home address information that may include some old information on you.

Your probation officer. Your caseworker. Your mental health practitioner. Your ex-boyfriends.

Glad I can help.

I'm just glad we're married to each other. Shouldn't you know this stuff? We have been married for 23 of my 24 years on this planet!

If you went to school in those previous addresses, check out the old school books.

In my case, mine were so expensive given what little I earned as a student that I always wrote my address in my schoolbooks in case I lost them somehow.

If you kept your daily planners from years past it's quite possible that you went to the trouble of writing down your name & address in them.

If you still have old phone books at home, look yourself up. (I never use them at home but still use them occasionally when I visit my mom. It feels so retro now.)

This is a great idea! If you don't have a copy of these phone books, call the reference desk at your public library and ask how you might go about getting access to these. Old phone books for the area you live in now might actually be part of the reference collection at the library you call.

As to the others, reference librarians are trained to help you get started on a search for things you need in the collections of other libraries. In some cases, getting the info you want may be as simple as contacting the reference librarian at the main library for whatever city you used to live in and asking him/her to look you up in the white pages for the year you are interested in and tell you the address over the phone.

Considering your bizzare love affair, her past name was Cressida. Your name of course was Troilus...

This reminds me of a drink called "Coco Loco" that I tried in the Dominican Republic. It has very strong Rhum in it. (It says keep away from flames on the bottle).

The bartender said that before I drink it, I should write down the address of the room I was staying so that they he could stick it on my forehead so that the hotel staff would know where to lead me back if I tried it.

Wanting to show off I foolishly took two. I made it back to my room on my own allright but I spent most of the night throwing up.

Excellent plan! If you can get her to remember her previous names, that might jog her memory of where she lived at the time! ;)

(Caveat: Previous names associated with previous lives probably won't work all that well. Most people asking for all your addresses are only interested in those you've used in your current incarnation.)

We better be careful, we may give people the wrong idea about us and our children and other wives and husbands.

Every time i think of you I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue It's no problem of mine but it's a problem I find Living a life that I can't leave behind There's no sense in telling me The wisdom of a fool won't set you free But that's the way that it goes And it's what nobody knows While every day my confusion grows Every time I see you falling I get down on my knees and pray I'm waiting for that final moment You'll say the words that I can't say
