~ Pennsylvania restricts search of real property records ~

A number of counties around the U.S. remove names from their online real property databases or, in this case, remove the option of searching by name unless a password is obtained. The reason cited for the new procedure is, of course, “privacy”, which one doesn’t have in public records. But in this instance the searcher is asked to give up her anonymity, just in case the request comes from say…a penitentiary (which WAS cited by the county). I didn’t know that inmates had computers.
