A few months ago, I posted about a site called SearchTempest.com that allows you to search across eBay and CraigsList by geographic area and topic. Recently, a reader commented about a different site of the same ilk: YourList, which searches local classifieds and other shopping listings.
I was intrigued by the fact that YourList recognized my location as soon as I brought up the homepage. You can change the location from the homepage as well. A search for “genealogy” brought up two listings in my area, including a yard sale offering “40 years’ accumulation of stuff!”
I haven’t tried it out with any surnames yet, but I thought I’d post about this resource to see if anyone else has had luck with it!
