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.) 

So, when you search for people, use the free help provided by the county clerk’s office.  Please send us a comment if you have any questions.  You can also us at or call us toll free at:  888-965-6696 for a free and friendly people search consultation.

    I am looking for my father that I haven’t seen in over 20 years. His name is Robert Lee Harris (african american male), born between 1927 or 1929. He’s originally from West Memphis, Arkansas and he was in Cleveland, Ohio when he married my mother Betty Harris in 1954. His marriage license states that his mother name may have been Geneva Coverdon and his father’s name may have been Turner. He also may have a brother by the name of Beverly that lived in Illinois.

    If you have any information pertaining to the location or what happened to him, please let me know.

    Hi Becky. Thanks for writing us. We found a likely match for you and your twin brother…

    A baby boy Tavares and baby girl Tavares were born in Santa Clara County, CA on 12/9/1965. Tavares was likely your father’s last name.

    Your mother’s maiden last name was listed as DeRose.

    To complete your search, you’ll need to request your non-identifying information. You can find out how to do this by reading this post:

    Once you have your non-identifying information, write us and we’ll complete your search. For FREE!

  11. Jonathan Fregoso says:

    hi I was born may 3rd 1985 and apperently my twin brother died 3 days or so after I was born. in I think Ensenada Mexico. I don’t know much but he apparently died chucking on his mucus and I don’t know anything about him or if he really died or not. apparently my dad recieved him wrapped in newspaper and he didn’t look at him I guess because of the pain. anyways. his name was suppose to be Jovan Fregoso. my moms name is lidya Garcia b4 she married my dad Nicolas Fregoso. if anyone can help me out I would appriciate it.

    we were identical apparently.

    I need to know if he’s alive or not. and what I can do to finally find out everything about this.

    I love you Jovan always in my heart<3

  12. For more than a year now, I am living on loneliness and emptiness after I was abandoned by my adopted family and relatives. I am living alone like an orphan on my own now. They turned their backs on me. I experienced severe depression, anxiety and worry at all time. My adopted father, Col. Eriberto Quimada Paran passed away more than a year ago and my adopted mother, Nieves Poloyapoy Chan-Paran who’s very sickly & old after she had a stroked was taken away by my relatives, uncles and aunties of both sides in our hometown in Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur, in Mindanao, Philippines where I was legally adopted 37 long years ago (January 03, 1974) from my single biological mother during her teen age years named DELILAH MARIQUIT after I was born out of wedlock being the family househelp of my surrogate mother’s family.

    I underwent Family Tree Healing Seminar and Re-parenting the Child Within Seminar for the healing of my Inner Child to help me recover from depression, loneliness and so much insecurities. I didn’t find or look for my biological parents at all because I was in good hand and I was provided with everything.

    I would like to ask how your organization can help me in my personal journey?
