In today's information age, many government agencies offer information sites free and open to the general public to search for public records. We have provided a sample of phrases or keywords to search for in any major search engine that will at least lead you in the right direction should that particular government agency offer any of their records online. It just takes a little bit of time and patience while testing and perfecting your researcher's skills. Please bear in mind that internet culture is based not on offering all available information cluttered into one single page, but by following links to specific topics.
