Daunting No More: Locating Public Records Resources on the Web

Google and other Web search engines are useful for locating the ever-growing plethora of public record resources on the Internet, but a new database from BRB is even better and makes this task less daunting than trying to figure out the best Google query.

BRB, the nation’s leading public records publisher, recently launched BRB Search, a free database for locating public records resources on the Web. The simple interface belies the wealth of links to public records it contains. Search options include Federal, County, State, City and Zip Code.


For example if you want to know all of the public records resources in any given state, simply select the State radio button and choose your desired State from the drop-down menu and click the Submit button.


Next choose the category of public resources you’re after.


And BRB Search serves up a list of free sites for that category – in this example it’s Public Records for Indiana.


Odds are favorable that this will be a researchers go to source for quickly finding links to free public records resources across a variety of broad areas that can then be narrowed to specific categories.
