Below you’ll find a list of links I regularly use in the course of researching stories and people. I plan to update this list regularly. Keep in mind that data of any sort is open to interpretation, so use it carefully.
If you have any specific questions about the use of a search tool or database, hit me up in the comments.
Deep Web Search
Free public records (Don’t use anything with a green check mark, that leads to a paid service)
Case checker (Free but not always up to date)
National court database (Requires paid access)
