How do I Search for People in France?

There's never a bad reason to travel to France, and that's certainly one way to search for someone in the country. But if a trip to France is impractical, then there are online French telephone directories that allow you to search the entire country and even overseas French territories to find the person you're seeking. The search interfaces are in French but are easy to use--even for those who don't speak the language.
