http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Internet It's very simple, short and sweet -- in true Google style -- and in this case that's a very good thing. Person Finder: Chile Earthquake lets you search a database of records, or submit details of someone you have information about. If you're yet to hear from a friend or family member in Chile, go search. If you're in Chile right now and you have information about survivors, or victims, please submit it. Google disclaims that they're not checking the veracity of data submitted: this is simply a public, searchable notice board to enable the friends and family of victims, and those on the ground in Chile, to communicate quickly and easily. At the time of writing there have been 33,000 records submitted to the Person Finder, and it's growing quickly. Let's hope the tally stops climbing sooner rather than later.
