September 16, 2012 - Thanks to LawyerCT for bringing up this topic. She provided a list of the top sites online that hold data on you.
I decided to go ahead and use this list to collect removal procedures from all these websites and provide direct links or instructions to do so.
The following list was provided as being the "big boys", so if you remove your name from these ones then all the smaller "sites" should fall afterwards.
How to remove yourself from each of these have been listed below. I would recommend that you scan some form of ID such as a state issued ID like a drivers license. Black out your picture and drivers number. Leaving your name, address and DOB visible. Any sites that requires such a thing will have an * after the address.
