What is a people search database and how does it work? Oddly enough just in the basic movements of our lives we all seem to make transactions of some kind. At one point or another we all interact with some form of government agency, public utility, or other public entity which (at some point) requires us to submit personal information – name, address, phone number, etc. Given these entities are public and funded by tax dollars, so too are the bulk of the records generated as a result of our interactions with them.

Frankly these days, unless you never possess any sort of identification at all and make no legitimate offer of information to places like tax collectors, libraries, registrars (property records), and courts – you can be fairly certain your information is stored somewhere in a public records archive. Any sort of interaction with a public entity – marraige records, water bills, natural gas bills, even library cards all end up generating a database record with your information on it somewhere. It’s inevitable given our lifestyle today

Where Does a People Search Database Come from?

You should have an idea where this is going by now. A number of smart people some time ago came up with the idea of compiling all these diverse documents into one massive people search database. I mean after all – if we’re all paying taxes (in part) for the accumulation of all this information, shouldn’t it be put to some sort of use for the rest of us? That’s why we got on board to participate in the use of public records to help people find friends and reconnect. From my own personal perspective, my quest to find friends from my past was frustrated by so many of my women friends having been married. As a result they were no longer using their maiden name in daily life. Then one day I stumbled upon the idea of using people search database records to find people by maiden name. Our maiden name search engine is the end result.

I hope it is as helpful to you in finding your friends and loved ones as it has been for me.
