How does FileMaker generate recid's?

Post

http://invdev.capitolabs.com/browserecord.php?-action=browse&-recid=123549

this is an example of a URL and item from our web portal. 

To begin the process of URL rewriting, I need to be able to read the URL,

grab the recid,

query the db to see if a row matches the recid, 

then do some URL rewrite magic to get it to flip over so that 

http://invdev.capitolabs.com/browserecord.php?-action=browse&-recid=123549 can become 

http://invdev.capitolabs.com/browserecord.php/0-39-01487 (or whatever is applicable)

Problem is, that recid is NOWHERE in our database, so I have no idea how to move forward here...

How does FM associate the recid to a record in the database?
