I like Manta, but I once almost tried to contact a recently deceased owner... it's very convenient, but not always accurate. I like using the state business entity lookup pages now. Problem is, often when I go to the secretary of state pages, the actual business lookup pages are hard to find. I made myself a direct link list to those pages, and thought I would share with BHW, since I can't find anything like that online. Note: All searches are basically free, except for Texas, which wants a buck a search. Enjoy!
