The County Clerk’s Office Can Help You Search For People
Search For People
A while back, we wrote a post on how to search for people with free help from the city clerk’s office. You can read that post here: City Clerk’s Office Can Help You Find People.
When you search for people and you know the county where they reside, the county clerk’s office is another great free resource. Here is a nice website to help you find any county in the USA: NACO – Find A County.
An easy way to find the address and phone number of a particular county clerk is to enter the county clerk’s name in google. For instance, if you google “Palm Beach County Clerk,” this clerk’s office will show up prominently in your google results and you can obtain their address and phone number.
Make sure when you contact a county clerk’s office and ask them to help you search for people, you are polite and that the person you are speaking with has ample time to help you. They may be able to help you:
- Search For People in a phone, city or reverse directory.
- Determine whether the people you search for have business licenses, business permits or occupational licenses.
- Determine if the people you search for have been involved in any recent court proceedings.
If you are adopted and are conducting a people search for your birth parents ask if there are any birth, marriage or death records available. Birth records or birth indexes may provide name information on the birth parents. If you know your birth mother’s maiden name, marriage records can help you obtain her current name. If one or both of your birth parents have passed away, death records can help you determine if you have any birth relatives. (The informant’s name on the death certificate is typically a relative or close friend.)
