Charles Jones LLC has leveraged data searching precision, accuracy and expediency to unprecedented levels for more than 100 years.

The company got its start in 1911, when Charles Jones, a Newark attorney, manually searched and indexed public records filed in New Jersey. The firm continued this practice until 1969, when Charles’ son Donald Jones, went against the advice of other experts and installed the company’s first computer system. It proved  fruitful for both the company and its customers, as he was able to speed the process of searching and lead the firm into the technology age. A pioneer and visionary, Donald Jones led the company along this new frontier by expanding his investment and spearheading the development of a complete electronic database. By 1972, the firm accomplished its first fully computerized search, positioning Charles Jones to continue as a leader in the information industry. In the late 1970’s, Donald continued this forward thinking and made Charles Jones one of the first companies in our industry to provide online access and information services.

In 2007, the company became part of a joint venture that included DataTrace Information Services- the premiere innovator and leading provider of data and automation to the title industry. During that time, the business name of Charles Jones took a hiatus when the joint venture took the name of Signature
Information Solutions LLC. In 2017, DataTrace assumed full ownership of the firm, and returned the company to its roots with the renaming back to Charles Jones. While its corporate name has evolved, the core values of Charles Jones and the heritage of excellence has remained.

Charles Jones expansive product list includes the industry-standard NJ Statewide Judgment (Upper Court) Search along with NJ Title and NJ and PA Tax Services, and NJ Geographic Searches that serve title, lending and legal markets managing real estate transactions and due diligence. The company offers
NJ and PA Corporate and UCC Services in NJ and PA.
