101 Investigative Links for Digging Up Information on People (2019)
This post was originally posted on March 27, 2014, but was updated on May 3, 2019 with new information.
As private investigators, it’s safe to say that we use thousands of online websites and databases on a monthly basis. While the types of websites that we visit depend on the case that we are working on, below we have outlined some of our “go to” resources.
While there are many sites that offer free access to information, the best sites usually have some sort of fee. In some cases, access is restricted to private investigators, but in most cases, the information is available to the public.
You may notice several New York based links, which is a bit bias, but it’s where we are based and it happens to be the financial capital of the world. You will also notice quite a few links from places like California, Florida, Texas and Illinois, which are some of the most populous states and / or have awesome public record laws (hey Florida!)
Without further ado, here’s our list of 101 research and investigative links for a private investigator (or amateur sleuth), in no particular order:
