Hello there! The last forum I joined was a very, very long time ago - just after I got rid of my 486 stack and decided to upgrade to one with a real Pentium processor! Yep, that long ago. I miss those days. Computers were the domain of a selected few who could actually be bothered to learn D.O.S. The internet was ad-free and business-free. Big business had not yet caught on to the potential of the internet. The only company I recall having a presence was Sony, who had a one page website which contained a list of their telephone numbers! How bloody weird is that? Seeing a simple line graphic of a tree was something to write home about.... I was a girl who loved computers and I still do. Anyway, I digress. I'm looking for some help and advice. I need to access personal information about someone - address, relatives, movements, cohabitees etc. This is not required for any malicious purpose. I gave up assassination as a hobby years ago. It's for personal reasons. Having exhausted virtually every website offering free 14 day trials to search public records, I'm at an impasse. I think I pushed my luck with the number of free trials I signed up for and then cancelled. I have an old Info Disk from 2000, but I know the last version issued was in 2009. Can't seem to find a download for that either. Has any one got any suggestions as to how I might access the UK electoral registers without charge, or a better way to gather this sort of information? It's not that I'm too tight to pay subscription fees, but I have found that some sites actually don't supply what they claim to. Also, the price seems to increase exponentially as you search - 192.com won't actually inform potential customers how many credits a simple search costs. I don't like this type of practice. These are public records and at one time you could freely search them on line with no hassle. So, am I missing something here? I'd be grateful for any inside info which might help me to search public records such as electoral rolls or any resources I might not have thought of. All help gratefully received!
