BRB's Free Public Record Search Directory
There are literally thousands of public record and public information sources accessible by anyone with web access. The links presented below represent the free public record search sites tracked and researched by BRB publications for inclusion in our subscription products and books. These free links will assist you in how and where to search government agencies for public records and public information.
However, we caution you. When content is online and free, be sure to look at the big picture. There are several key factors to keep in mind when evaluating free online sites:
- What data is actually viewable?
- What are the search mechanics for key data fields and identifiers?
- What is the severity of the disclaimer?
- Does online equal onsite?
Knowing or recognizing the advantages or disadvantages to online sites can be challenging to a researcher. Online access can be an instant path to very useable record data. But when a high degree of due diligence is needed and a supplemental or incomplete site is used, the results may provide more harm than good.
If you are a professional researching and using public records on a daily basis, we suggest you consider a free evaluation of the Public Record Research System. This service has ALL the information.
But if you are merely looking for what can be found for free, using this site will certainly do the trick for you.
