The world of finding people continues to change. Just when you think things are stable, the ground underneath you shifts. The routine is gone. You need to start over again.
One ingredient under constant change is the world of public records databases. They never sit still. They are businesses, and businesses fail, g0 bankrupt or get bought out. They are moving targets.
Over the last 15 years, I mastered and then lost access to numerous databases. Most of the time they get bought out by their competition.
I learned an important lesson. You can’t hitch your wagon to one or even a few databases. You have to know how to jump into any database. It’s the only way to stay ahead of the game. Plus, you need to be ready for it at any time. When takeovers occur, they do so fast.
