Sayari Search removes native search restrictions on hundreds of millions of global public records, unlocking the power to search by any term, including by person. Results could include:
- Individual vital records (e.g. voter rolls)
- Shareholders, directors, or other control parties on companies
- Attorneys, auditors, accountants, and other corporate service providers
- Natural person consignees on shipment records
- Any other place a person might be named!
Some tips on how to better target your searches for a person:
- Whenever possible, search by ID number instead of a person's name. This aids disambiguation and avoids variations in word order and spelling.
- Names may appear on different records as first name last name; as last name, first name; or in some other word order. Be careful not to overuse exact match operators (quotes) and miss these variations.
- Use proximity and boost operators to account for inconsistent use of middle/secondary names. Ali Tajideen may sometimes appear as Ali Mohammad Tajideen; searching “ali tajideen”~2 will return both variations.
- Use fuzzy operators to handle typos or spelling variants.
- Many different people could use the same name, especially if it is common (e.g. Jose Garcia). If you know something else about the person for whom you are searching, incorporate that into your search to narrow things down. This could include:
A trademark or company name the individual may use frequently (e.g. Super Ganado)
Citizenship, or part of a physical address associated with the individual
Known associates and/or family members of the individual in question
Different versions of the person's identification number (e.g. cédula or passport)
This could result in queries such as:
+Jose +Garcia +"Super Ganado"
+Jose +Garcia +"Buenos Aires"
+Jose +Garcia +”East Tower”
+Jose +Garcia +Nadia
+Jose +Garcia +1.234.567
+Jose +Garcia +1234567
Once you find the right Jose Garcia, you can expand your search from there.
