Connect With Living Relatives

Posted on December 11, 2009

Archives just expanded its services by offering members access to Contact and Public Records Reports. These reports provide you with hard-to-find information, and will be invaluable in your research on living and recently deceased relatives.

Normally accessing this information would require you to send in a written request to a government agency, or to compile information from several different sources. Archives.com makes the information easily accessible and affordable--just one way that we are revolutionizing family history research online.


Contact Reports

Provide contact information as well as other basic details about a living or recently deceased person. These reports are ideal for those who would like to contact a potential relative to inquire about shared ancestry, distant cousin, niece or nephew, or re-connect with an old acquaintance.


Public Record Reports

Scour public record databases for comprehensive information about a person. These in-depth reports provide up-to-date contact information, current and previous addresses, known relatives and neighbors, criminal records, property records, and more!

To view a Contact Report or Public Records Report, log in to Archives.com and run a Living People Search. If you find the person you're looking for in the search results, click View Contact Info or View Public Records. Basic results are available free with your membership.

In an effort to keep subscription costs as low as possible, additional fees are required to view Contact and Public Record Reports. However we're continuously working to negotiate lower prices from our sources to ensure that your research is as affordable as possible.

Connecting with living relatives has never been easier--just in time for the holidays! Share your thoughts about Contact and Public Record Reports with us at feedback@archives.com.
