Google Person Finder provides a common place to search for, comment on, and connect records from many missing person registries. Offlate, it has become a very useful tool in responding to natural disasters by reconnecting people with their family and friends.
"The software powering Google Person Finder is open source so we're listing the open issues and feature requests we've received over the past few months in hopes the community can help us improve the code. We've created a Developer Guide to help developers get started.
As always, we invite those interested to post questions on our public Person Finder discussion group. Those who're interested in improving the PFIF data format can also join the PFIF discussion group," explains Google.
