How To Conduct a Public Record Search

Dec 16, 2007
Conducting a public record search is done in a variety of ways. You can search the public records through different government agencies, the library and the local courthouse. These search methods are usually free. However, there are other ways to search for public records through paid services that are on the Internet and offline as well.

There are public domains on the Internet that offer free public record systems that are searchable. These also can be freely accessed. Government public records, in some cases, are free to the public, but for the most part, it can be classified as confidential. Usually you will be able to find basic information and so if you are looking for detailed or comprehensive information, you may have to pay a monthly or one-time fee to get more information.

During the past, public record information was only obtainable in paper format that are usually filed away and have to be physically retrieved. Some of the information is stored on microfilm, microfiche or photographic copy.

If you do not want to do the entire public record search on your own, you can hire a private investigator to assist you, but that method can get really expensive depending on how long the search will take.

Public record search can be very time consuming if you don't know how to conduct your search. This is the reason why so many database companies are offering that type of service to minimize your search. You can get paid membership to join and access the company's database yourself to conduct your search.

These extensive databases can often be accessible on the Internet. Usually the interface that allows you to search records is user-friendly. You pay a small membership fee to unlimited search capabilities at any time.

You can use the membership database to search for addresses, birth records, death records, marriage records, criminal records, business records, phone numbers, civil records, and any other vital information that you need.

These companies that offer an online database public record search are very popular and are even used by lawyers, private investigators, law enforcement, and other network of professionals. They turn to these methods of search because the information is all put together in one place and it is easier and less time consuming.

Anyone who is interested in conducting public records search to find valuable information can do it manually at the courthouse. This, however, is very time consuming and may require much more research on your part.
