California became a US state in 1850, two years after the Mexican-American War ended. The third-largest state in the United States leads the country in agricultural production, despite the rapid urbanization of most of its territory. With over 39 million residents, California’s population size means it has the largest white pages on the west coast and in the entire country.
A phone number search on California white pages will provide you with information about residents, especially unknown callers with a California area code. You will also have access to California public records linked to the person, including criminal records, property records, and court records.
