I saw someone mention a directory of phone numbers that were in address order but I cannot recall the name of the directory or the vendor.  Can anyone help?

I know in my city I can go to whitepages.com and then click on reverse look up...type in one of the addresses you know on the street.  Then it will ask if you would like to find similar results...by clicking that you get all the addresses and phone numbers of everyone on the street.

Cole Directory.  I've used it almost exclusively the past 12 months.

Hmm, that worked pretty good.  Thanks for the suggestion.

That's the one.  I'm peeking at their website now.  Do you use a hardcopy or do they provide a sortable database?  Which one is most useful for our purposes?  I see a few different flavors: insurance, real estate, government and home services.
 
Update:  I'm looking at that online feature, where you can drag an outline over a neighborhood on a map and get all of the information for every home in the defined area.  Looks kinda useful, for doorknocking purposes.
 
I'll be sure to check out Bresser's as well.  Thanks guys.
