All of this information is in the public domain, so there is no reason not to offer it if it's what people want.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Genealogy.us.org will now offer a criminal records search as part of their public documents package, company officials said yesterday.
“People come to us when they want to build their family tree,” a company official said. “But a family history is much more than simply who married who and the children they had. There are a lot of hidden stories in every family that are interesting, if rarely talked about.”
The company said that they had gotten requests from customers for additional information in their search package, and decided it made sense to make it available when they do their initial search.
“All of this information is in the public domain, so there is no reason not to offer it if it's what people want,” the official said. “So, we've added the information to our database and it will now be available.”
The information will include arrest reports, conviction reports, jail reports and any information about warrants filed in the person's name.
“It would be fun for people to find out they had an uncle who was a bank robber or a bootlegger,” the official said. “Every family has a few juicy little secrets. Who wouldn't want this type of information?”
No additional charges will be associated with the criminal history checks, officials said.
“This is now part of our basic package,' the official said.
