Best Way to Perform a Record Search Online

There are various practical reasons for conducting a record search online, and it can be a great way to gain insights on the character of a person, potential threats in the neighborhood and much more.
Regardless of the purpose of the record search online, it is important to know exactly how to go about doing so in an effective and efficient manner. Otherwise, you run the risk of spending countless hours and large sums of money to try and find useless information about a person.

The following is a guide to the best way to perform a record search online and additional information on how to even further gain information about a person.

Online Records Search

Use Our Search People Service

There are many advanced background check services out there that are – for lack of a better term – a scam. They promise detailed insights into the person in questions, require you to pay outlandish prices and ultimately reveal nothing.

Here at CheckPeople, we take great pride in providing detailed, informative reports for every record search conducted, without charging an arm and a leg for you to get the results you are looking for.

The following four step process is the best way to perform a record search online in an effective and efficient manner.

Visit CheckPeople

The first step in your quest to learn more about a person in whom you have questions or concerns is to visit the home page of our website.

To save you precious time and money, we made sure to provide our record search bar at the very top of our home page, so you never have to go endlessly searching through our site to find what you need.

If you want to learn more before using our record search service, you can simply scroll down and check out information on our home page that tells you exactly what our reports include, who it is intended for and answers to our most frequently asked questions.

Enter in the information

After you arrive to checkpeople.com and locate the search bar at the very top of the home page, then you simply enter the first name, last name and location(optional) of the individual you are conducting the record search on and the process is officially underway.

After a brief moment, our system will load the names of the people that match the name and location you provided, and you can simply click on the appropriate one to continue the record search online.

While you only need the first and last name of the individual, providing the exact location – either former or current – of the person can make the process much more efficient.

Complete The Process

After you have entered in the person's name and location and select the appropriate name, the process of gathering information on that individual begins.

During this step in the process, you are not required to do anything, other than give consent that you understand the records that may be revealed in the report.

The entire search process takes less than five minutes to complete in many cases, and you can then access the records.

Since we are required to pay for the public records, there is a cost involved to receive the record search report, although we try to keep our prices as reasonable as possible.

View the records

After our system completes a quick search of various public record sources, you then have the opportunity to gain access to the entire report.

Each one of our reports goes into detail and provides useful information for a variety of purposes. Among others, each record search reveals the arrest records, courthouse records and contact information of the individual(see below).

You then have the opportunity to view the records in order to contact the individual, make a personal decision on the extent of your relationship or to simply satisfy your curiosity.

What CheckPeople Reveals

There are a number of interesting pieces of information found through one of our record searches online. Essentially, if the information is public, you can likely find it through our search people service.

Here are just a few of the many insightful pieces of information you can find out about a person through our online record search:

  • Criminal records
  • Civil records
  • Bankruptcies
  • Liens
  • Lawsuits
  • Phone book listings
  • Arrest reports
  • Traffic reports

In addition to these in-depth records, you can also learn all of the basics about a person – which can then be used to contact the individual, understand them better as a person,etc. Here are a few of the more basic pieces of information you are provided through our search people service:

  • Full names
  • Contact information
  • Current and prior addresses
  • Immediate and distant relatives
  • Marriage and divorce records
  • Social media accounts
  • Online dating accounts

Due to the extensive list of insights provided by our online record search service, it can, and is, used for a number of different reasons. Whether you want to know about sex offenders in the neighborhood, the criminal history of an individual you are dating or simply want to search yourself, you can do so through our sophisticated record search system.

Conduct a Google Search

Although the best way to quickly gain the most amount of knowledge about a person through an online record search is to use our search people service, you can also learn extra bits and pieces of information by conducting a quick Google search just to see what you find.

A quick Google search is likely to reveal any social media profiles the individual may have, profile at the company they work for(if applicable) and much more.

While it may not show more detailed information that is provided through an advanced background check service such as CheckPeople, a Google search should give you a clear indication to whether or not the individual is active on social media and where they work.

Additionally – and a useful piece of information for many – is a Google is more likely to turn up recent photos of the person than an advanced background check or government resources.

A Google search is not going to tell you everything you likely want to know about a person in whom you have real questions and concerns, but it does do a good job of providing little pieces of information when used in unison with our search people service.

Try Government Resources

There are a number of other government resources that can provide insightful information about an individual as well as the places and people they are most closely associated with.

Perhaps the most useful government resources to utilize in addition to our search people service and Google is the USA.gov – which is a government website that provides detailed information about issues dealing specifically with the government. Depending on the exact purpose for the search, the National Archives or data.gov may be of some assistance as well.

While the main intent of this resource is to provide with useful information about how to conduct a record search online, there are resources that you can access in person to also aid in your search.

In many cases, a simple visit to the courthouse is enough to locate desired information about a person, although keeping your search online often provides a much more efficient way of doing things.

When to Search Records Online

It is important to have a full understanding of when it is acceptable to perform a record search online and when it is immoral or against the law to do so.

First and foremost, be sure to never use our CheckPeople search people service – or any other form of online search – to gain information that can be used to discriminate against others, stalk them or harass them in any way whatsoever as doing so is against the law.
In other words, our service as well as others are not to be used by landowners who want to learn more about potential tenants, employees who are in the hiring process, etc.

With that said, most who conduct a record search online have good intentions. As long as you ensure you are following the law and respect the privacy of others you can use our search people service for just about any reason, including the following:

  • Find the whereabouts of a lost lover
  • Find out about threats in the neighborhood
  • Determine the character of someone your child is dating
  • Establish contact with a high school friend
  • Understand the history of a potential dating partner

Our service is intended to help others stay safe and live a happier life, and using it for the right reasons can help you do exactly that.

Conclusion

A record search online can yield powerful, insightful results about a person and help you stay safe and satisfy your curiosity.

Now that you know the best way to perform a record search online, you can begin looking up old friends, finding threats to your children and much more – keeping you safe and in control of every situation.
