Some of our users have asked us about the links found on our Popular Databases page and our Useful Databases page. Why do these categories exist when all the other links are organized geographically or by category?
We created the “Popular Databases” page (found under our Categories menu) as for databases that people find most helpful and we wanted to give them a home of their own for easy access. Examples include: the Active Duty Military Status finder; Area Codes by City; ATM Locators; Birth Records; County Finder; the Social Security Death Index; Ellis Island Immigration Records; and Worldwide Phone Directories.
We also created a page called “Useful Databases” in our United State Nationwide menu. This is used for useful nationwide database that don’t easily fit into categories. Rather than shoehorn them into not-so-obvious directory pages where they’d be hidden to the user, we wanted to highlight them by giving them a special page. Examples include: Better Business Bureau Reports; Famous Graves; Home Prices nationwide; Offbeat Roadside Attractions; and Employer Tax ID Numbers.
If you know of useful databases that we don’t have, drop us a line here: Contact us. We’ll give you credit for the submission in the database description.
