Internet censorship in the People's Republic of China makes it a bit more difficult to find people in China. Blocking filters are somewhat heavy so many terms get filtered out of the search results. This shouldn't enter into searches for people's names but it is possible. The only way to find out is to conduct a search and view the results. Try searching for journalist Shi Tao who is in prison. Looking for such a popular name should return many results and is a good test of the quality and extent of a people database. Fairly often it should not be necessary to pay a paid search service to find info about someone.
A good people finder for China gazt.net which is actually a marriage search. Yahoo China (launched in 2007) may have developed into a useful store of information by now. Google of course is the largest search engine and since agreeing to comply with the Great Firewall of China's censorship, when people search for interdicted Chinese words on the PRC block google.cn displays a message starting that it is complying wit laws, policies and regulations and is only shown partial results. Google states that it is better to participate in this way and gain a foothold in free speech than to not participate at all.
