From another site, with a link to

anyone ever try this sort of thing? I think it sounds interesting ... I've been talking to my boss about having 1/2 day off a week and this might just be the way to spend that time, plus my lunch hour that I rareky take!

anyone know anything about it?


"What does a court researcher do?

There are many types of court researchers gathering various information from the public records available. The type of research depends on the needs of the client. When you are at the recorder, registrar of deeds, or bureau of conveyance office (or other name, depending on your locale), you will meet people who are researching records for much more detailed information than what we need. In some areas, we also collect information from court documents, including civil case filings.

We generally are picking up very basic information from the documents available, such as names and addresses. We then enter the information into database or spreadsheet software, depending on the needs of the client.

The amount of work available in a given county depends largely on the population base and growth and mobility of the area. Very small counties (i.e. 10,000 people) may have only one hour of work per month while a very large county (over 1,000,000 population) could keep a fast-working researcher busy for 30-40 hours per week and could even need to be done by a team."




wow, that does sound interesting! let us know if you try it out.

I applied, there was an opening in my home county, but I work in another county which didn't list an opening, but I listed that one as well hoping that I'll get both. It might really work out to be something great, I'll post my "report" on what transpires.

Sounds like a great idea--only drawback is that courts are open during the week during the day--and if you work during those hours, that's a little tough. But let us know how it turns out!

Some of the records offices are open for extended hours from what I was told at least! I'm not going to get too excited about it until the company calls or emails me about a job.

I am doing it in TN for tax lien records. I is easy to do. It requires you to collect the data, enter it into a spreadsheet and email it in. They provide you with support for questions you might have and that's it. The tax liens pay 30 cent per record, but it is a little extra money and in this economy, every little bit helps.
