I don’t know about you, but I am a little alarmed at this new collection of records available for searching at My Heritage.  Their newest collection of “public” records are between the years 1970 and 2010.  They include “records that were generated from telephone directories, property tax assessments, credit applications, voter registration lists and other records available to the public.”

My concern is how they obtained credit applications, how those records would be considered public, how they protect the privacy of that information and just what are they doing with it?

Talk about an identity thief’s good fortune!  I think My Heritage should be forced to reveal how they obtained those applications and forced to destroy them.

Your thoughts?
