Also, people move and while they change their addresses, the grid sometimes don’t change or if they enter the grid it is sometimes in error. Don’t trust QRZ too much.

Paul - while that would be nice to have, it'd have to be updated every day (or night) in order to remain current. QRZ discourages such regular automated things as it ties up their query systems.
Other attempts to automatically query the QRZ database have been only semi-successful, with random errors and lack of information returned being the big two things, with neither rhyme nor reason being evident.
Besides that, some of the grid information in QRZ is inaccurate, as it's derived through geo-location rather than user supplied information.
Sorry for the less than encouraging response...
