The fastest way to conduct a USA People Search starts with knowing where to search – and there’s a good chance it’s not where you might automatically think.
Rather than leave you in suspense, you should know that you can actually start a USA People Search right here and get free, instant preview results. All you need is a name and a last known city and state (even an old one will do):
Most people start with search engines, such as Google and Bing, but quickly find they aren’t able to run a people search the way they would search for just about everything else. The reason has to do with the nature of public records.
Whether you’re just trying to run a basic people search or if you’re looking for a complete background check, most of the information you’re interested in (criminal records, marriage/divorce records, etc) is probably part of the public record as recorded by a local government office.
The problem for regular search engines is that virtually none of the county governments/courthouses in the US make this information available to Google, Bing or any other ordinary search engine. In fact, most of the information isn’t available online at all – it’s only available if you physically walk into the specific county courthouse to request the information. On top of that, the information usually isn’t free – a single record can easily cost $15 or more.
Fortunately, people search companies have done the legwork – literally! – to collect all the available public records in the US to allow for a comprehensive USA people search. Their database of billions of records (updated daily!) can be searched using just a name and last known city and state combination.
In just seconds, you’ll receive free preview results detailing an approximate age, past cities/states of residence and some known relatives/associates so you can be confident you’ve got the right person. From there, for around $10, you’ll receive a comprehensive background check that includes a current address and phone number, an address and phone number history, criminal records, marriage/divorce records, judgments, liens, bankruptcies, etc.). The full report is available in less than a minute.
So, while Google and Bing are great for getting information about the vast majority of things, when it comes to a USA people search, trust a specialized people search engine to get the job done for you. There’s no other way to get the same kind of comprehensive as quickly or as cheaply.
