TLANTA, GA /Send2Press Newswire/ — Pretrieve (www.pretrieve.com) today announced the launch of their free, comprehensive public record search engine, making the collection of information about people and businesses from free internet sources more efficient and accessible to consumers. Pretrieve’s unique service connects researchers to a variety of county, state, and national public records through categorized links that deliver users directly to their search results, not just the homepages.

“Finding public record information on the Internet has always been a challenge,” said Paul Bunting, President of Pretrieve. “In our investigations, we found that the big search engines didn’t go deep enough to find the searchable databases that we were looking for, and we needed a way to tap into the resources of the deep web. Our goal was to develop a specialized search engine for retrieving public record information that was familiar to operate but delivered results in a more meaningful way.”

Pretrieve’s public record search engine offers users the ability to quickly corroborate facts about people or businesses from official sources. Homeowners can perform a background check on their service contractors, child care providers, or even search for sexual offenders and parolees that may be living in the neighborhood quickly and at no cost. With Pretrieve, small business owners, legal researchers, private investigators, real estate appraisers and other professionals now have multiple public record sources right at their fingertips.

“We’ve seen a sharp increase in the number of visits to our website from consumers who are curious about what information is available about themselves, their neighbors, and their community,” said Bunting. “In the wake of recent news stories regarding data security breeches at information companies that may have resulted in criminals accessing personal information, as well as concerns over extended access to personal information through the Patriot Act, there has been heightened interest in public records from consumers.”

Pretrieve LLC is a privately owned, Atlanta-based company, focused on developing deep web search engine technology for public record retrieval. Pretrieve licenses its search technology to information providers that seek to enhance their product’s value by integrating access to free data sources.
