  33. As discussed on a previous show - I have listed resources to help you search for access to public information, and, information that may be purchased.

    Note: I have no affiliation or am I making any endorsement for use of these resources; just pointing out examples to access this kind of information on the Internet and World Wide Web. I tried to group the resources together as best as possible.

    Keep in mind that even though you may sign-up to be a member of a Web site - that some of your information, such as a "user name" for your membership may be accessible outside of that resource by search engines such as (this also includes images). So you may want to change your use of your "user name" across multiple sites; similar to changing your use of the same passwords to protect yourself. Or it is a question to ask yourself - how visible or invisible do I want to be online? If you associate your name (even a nickname or alias and someone knows it) with a face then you are visible.

    A way to save money - sign-up for a trial account that may give you "a 7-day window to use the service" if you pay the annual fee; however, make sure you note the cancellation date or you may end-up paying for the entire year! [make sure you check out their "Other Products Page"] , Google's Image search, (part of Google), and Google's Plus (similar to Facebook); note Google makes money by selling advertising - they make this statement as related to Google Plus - "'Google may use my account information to personalize +1s on content and ads on non-Google web sites.'" and two other search engines to work with that are also popular.
    Facebook has become popular not only for individuals but business and organizations to use as a social media marketing tool to gain popularity.
    LinkedIn - typically considered for business professional but also used by others.
    MySpace - was more popular before Facebook but still used by individuals. Another social connectivity resource like facebook.
    Twitter - a social networking tool - find out what’s happening, right now, with the people and organizations you are interested in (if they tweet !!!). - business community where you can find out more detailed information on a business and its contacts. - provides free online company search and people search tools. - information on 37+ million Companies and 35+ million executive. - helps Business-to-Business companies discover and connect with millions of targeted sales prospects. Find verified contact information, including email, phone, and social media. and - comprehensive people search resources to use; costs/fees to access (I have no experience with them). - search engine that claims to be the "most comprehensive people search on the Web"; dive into the deep Web to bring you results you won't find in any other search engine then we use a powerful identity resolution engine to link those seemingly disparate results into a set of meaningful profiles so you can easily find the person you are looking for.
    Radaris - another comprehensive people search resource to use. - another comprehensive people search resource to use. - a social media search tool. - looking for close relatives, family tree, divorce, marriage, birth, death records? - claims to have an extensive database of images, newspapers, vital records, and more for your ancestors' historical records. - a resource that has access to local Yellow Pages, White Pages, search, directories, news, weather and more. - looking for phone numbers, addresses, reverse look-ups? gain entrance to those official state Web resources that provide online access to property tax and related information. Check out the State of Wisconsin info and local Dane County examples below.


    Wisconsin and local resources examples:
    Access to the Public Records of the Consolidated Court Automation Programs (CCAP) from the Wisconsin Court System - commonly referred to as "CCAP"; and City of Madison Property Taxes
