Facts to Remember About Searching Government Records
It is important to remember three important truths when searching online public records provided by government agencies:
Only 70% or so of government maintained public records are available online. For example, 29%
of the state and local courts do NOT provide online access to criminal or civil data.
Government sites can be free or fee-based. Generally, the fee-based sites are more robust.
Most free government public record name search sites contain no personal identifiers beyond the name. This
can be a problem when researching a common name.
Keep these three truths in mind and your public record searching will lead to better results.
