Our New Additions

In addition to our retail customers, we also recently launched a web site for Chicago land public libraries. It's a scaled down version of what we offer to our retail clients, but it provides a useful function for people who are interested in certain types of key public record data searches.

Our latest venture is Record Information Services' web site specifically designed for elected officials and public entities in Northern Illinois at Illinois Public Officials. This web site allows elected officials, school districts, political action groups and many others the ability to target specific areas by Illinois State Representative District, Illinois State Senate District and the Illinois Congressional Districts. In addition to state of Illinois political districts, you can also target a search by Illinois census tract.

As of 12/2005, we launched over 4000+ localized content pages for Illinois cities and counties to highlight what is happening with in each of those areas on a weekly basis.

As of 02/2006, we launched over 500+ localized content pages for the current daily foreclosure information for Illinois cities and counties to highlight what is happening with in each of those areas daily.

Please feel free to visit our newest web sites for more information, or visit your local public library to search key databases. If your library does not currently subscribe please tell them that you want to access the ELECTRONIC PUBLIC RECORDS DATABASE FOR PUBLIC LIBRARIES!

What Makes Us Different

The key differences between Record Information Services, Inc. and other data compilers are accuracy, experience, and customer service. We are a compiler rather than a broker, which allows us great control over the quality of our data, since we are not purchasing our data from another party. We have taken the extra step of verifying addresses and phone numbers on our records before the data is delivered to you. After working 16 years with clients in all types of industries, we have received great insight into our customer's needs. Our state-of-the art website was specifically designed with our customer in mind. Unlike other data websites, we check our records ahead of time for the search you have requested, to ensure that you will only purchase searches of benefit to you. Also, being a locally known and located business headquartered in Kaneville, IL, our support staff is just an e-mail away from helping you with your needs.


If you're interested in current and effective marketing data, Record Information Services is your only option for Chicago land!
