Now I wonder how one can find out how all those pay-to-find-people websites get their info–supposedly its from public records, do they pay people to go to courthouses and gov’t agencies and OCR documents, or do they get it in electronic format to begin with, or???  You know, those people-finder sites.  Oh, maybe they buy credit reports on people?  Well, don’t you need SSN #s for that?  I mean, where exactly do they get all that address info etc from?
