About PublicData.com


In 1776, a group of patriots placed King George on notice, with a declaration and list of unresolved grievances, that a new nation with new ideas and ideals was born. One of these grievances stated that the "King of Great Britain... has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures." In short, the King had taken private ownership of the Public Records for his benefit and manipulation.

In the 1970's, a revolutionary attitude against the "establishment" existed and access to "open government" was demanded by the public to re-establish trust. The result was adoption of "open record acts", so called "sunshine laws", and the "Freedom of Information (FOIA)" laws in all states and the Federal Government.

In 1997, the confluence of technology, the Internet, and these founding ideals that the Public Record is owned individually by the Public rather than the government, combined to establish PublicData.com.

Today, we remain dedicated to the idea that all citizens of our free society should have access to all of the records that government collects (except information critical to national security and information involved in ongoing criminal investigation). To further this cause, we remain dedicated to delivering the most accurate, lowest priced, and widest selection of real-time Public Records access possible.

PublicData.com acquires all of its data from various government entities (directly and indirectly) and is in no way subsidized by any government or taxpayer dollars.
