When Cousin Henry emigrated to America in the midst of that unfortunate misunderstanding over his signature on a cheque, you expected never to see him again. Cheer up: thanks to portal service Yahoo!, old Henry is soon to be a mere mouse-click away. Yesterday Yahoo! announced plans to host US Search, a comprehensive database of US public records. In the first quarter of 1999, US Search welcomed approximately 4.6 million busybodies, snitches and bail bondsmen to its Web site. Now it will be linked from Yahoo! People Search via banner ads, fixed buttons and text links. With that kind of exposure, America may soon split into two classes, those searching, and those being sought. US Search offers numerous packages including adoption reunions, background on suitors, existing claims against any collateral you may be considering accepting, court judgments, employee screening, and more, all priced from about $10.00 to 50.00 US. The services are virtually instantaneous, and volume discounts are available for the pathologically nosy. Shares of US Search climbed 1-13/16 this morning on news of the agreement. ®
