I was wondering if some one could please look up the white pages for me. I am in Australia and it seems nothing is for free. I have a name and address of this man, he is Harold Van Cleave and lives at 2445 Sunset Dr, Co, 80501. Harold was in the US Navy with Cecil Sellers and I would like to contact him to see wether he was Cecils mate. It would be fantastic if he was because I have been looking for Cecil for years and it seems he has passed away. Cecil was on PT 144 in Cairns and Milne Bay. Both men knew my mother who was in the AWAS in Cairns Australia. They both also have written to my mother in 1943 whilst they were in the Navy. I am anxious to talk to Harold so if anyone could help me I would very much appreciate it. I received Harolds address from Alyce but no phone number, he was a member of the PT boat but they haen't heard from Harold for 2 years now.

There are several internet websites that access the white pages for an on-line phone directory. One of the popular ones is www.switchboard.com If you go to switchboard and search for Van Cleave in Longmont CO 80501, there is only one listing - first name Dale, phone 303-776-6923, different street address than yours. Perhaps a relative.

Thank you Ed, I really appreciate your help. I will try to call him and see if he is a relative. I have tried swichboard.com and I always get directed to a paying site. I will keep trying. Regards Katrina

You should also be aware that if you search the Social Security Death Index (http://ssdi.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi) for Harold Vancleave (no space), they list a Harold O Vancleave as born 6/10/22 died 12/21/93, last residence Boulder CO. Boulder is only 10 miles from Longmont, so it might be your same person. Even though PT Boats HQ may have said they last heard from Van Cleave 2 years ago, quite often family members keep up their loved one's membership long after his last patrol. But even if that turns out to be the sad case, maybe Dale is in fact a relative and can provide you some info. Good luck.

Thanks again Ed, I have just rang Dale and he said he did not know Mr Harold Van Cleave. When I looked up white pages.com it said there were 3 addresses of Van Cleave, Boulder, La Fayette and Longmont. If its no trouble would you see if there's a number at the other 2 addresses.
