I'm doing a postal code search for the following:

29588, Myrtle Beach, SC

89074, Henderson, NV

91387, Santa Clarita, CA

The search comes up with nothing. I checked USPS.ORG and these are valid US zipcode.

Any idea why the postal code search can't find these zip codes?

Some US zip codes are missing from our database. A geonames user has sent me an update file at the beginning of this month, but unfortunately I have not yet had the time to integrate it into the database.

do you have any timeline as to when you might be able to add the missing zipcodes into your database?

Half of the missing codes I have received at the beginning of the month are now included. For the others I don't find the code in the TIGER line data set and it is therefore more work to find the lat/lng and county.

Your codes are all included.

Cheers
