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.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Have you considered using FullContact https://www.fullcontact.com/developer/ ? I have used it in the past, and it's pretty handy.

https://pipl.com/ it might help, you can try their free stuff first to make sure accuracy. 

In my experience they are good to collect public data but accuracy might be low.

Hi Jason
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

Hey Jason,

Specifically what are you looking for and for what reason?  Too many choices and too many bad ones as well. 

Do you need, title, roles, startups, fortune 500, specific verticals?

Have a few in mind but it kinda depneds on what you really need

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.
