SOURCEBK TO PUBLIC RECORD INFOUser Review - Book Verdict
Produced by BRB, the publisher of top-notch public-record directories, this useful work is unique in scope, consolidating federal, state, and county government information. Data are is given on more than 20,000 government agencies. The book is well organized, with a helpful two-part layout. The first section, the Public Record Primer, offers searching tips and discusses privacy issues. The second covers state agencies, including information on accessing state archives, criminal records, corporation records, vehicle ownership and driving records, accident reports, and GED records. Detailed research information is available on all 50 states. Another interesting feature is the city-county and zip code cross reference, great for ready reference. Overall, this clear and readable book contains comprehensive, accurate, specific information, including phone numbers, addresses, retrieval costs, time frames, web resources, office hours, and restrictions. The lack of an index does not diminish the book's value as a serious reference tool, as there is a useful table of contents and alphabetical state listings. Well worth its cost, this will be welcomed in academic and public libraries and genealogical research collections.DBobbie Wrinkle, McCracken Cty. P.L., Paducah, KY ...
