I'm looking for a public records/peoplesearch api that I can cross reference similar to spokeo. I'm looking for updated contact information, so I don't need criminal, credit etc....Lexis Nexis I think is going to be to expensive as the amount of data we are cross referencing.
I am assuming that you are looking for phone and address type info. If so, I would take a look at http://pro.whitepages.com/solutions/api/. I used to work there a number of years back and at the time had some of the best data on the market.
Some others you might want to check out are Inflection: https://inflection.com/products/api and PeopleFinders: http://www.peoplefinders.com/business-solutions
Happy to chat more if you DM me

Jason, free data are not reliable. It can be a waste of your time in collecting and reaching out to them. Go for a paid service for a period of two or three months, so that your efforts won't be in vain. It is worth spending time in getting the right data rather than going for some data that doesn't exist.
LinkedIn and Quora are the best sources if you can reach out to people of your interest.
