Take your time to be thorough, it's understandable that you would want to get your answers and run, but if you want free, you have to work for it a little. So-called "premium" sites will charge for what you find here, and they offer nothing different. If you can't find it here or elsewhere, we do have recommendations on the very bottom of each page for true information providers that are reliable and trustworthy.

County Sites
Currently, these are the county sites we have found on the internet. If your county isn't here and you're sure they have a website, please contact us with the most recent web address you have. County sites can be helpful because they are the hub for most legal activities involving people. A courthouse site will list court, sheriff, jail, inmate search, arrest warrant, most wanted, sex offender registry, clerk of courts, rulings from judges, land records and deeds, deaths and marriages and in some instances birth records, plus most have either cemetery archives or listings for the churches in the area that do. On the whole, the best place to start is here.

City Websites
City and other local sites can help in your search for someone if you need to find nearby business directories or to use any chamber of commerce or better business bureau member database that might be available to the public. Contacting people at these may increase your chances to find people free if you make an effort to contact people at the cities web sites. Other things you can find are accident, criminal activity and police reports., search felons and other high risk felony offenders that are at large.

If you got this far down on the page, you might need a little extra help. Using the menu on the right, it might benefit you to use one of the other areas to start fresh. If you have really been working on this more than you have time or patience for, the following sites are safe for checking and dealing with if you would like to try them: allows access to the 43 million member database to anyone who signs up free, that's how they connect you and the person you are trying to contact, try their free people search here.

Intelius, on the other hand, is a professional data provider for background check and  work, criminal and residence history. Conduct a nationwide advanced people search by spouse or maiden name, age, DOB or SSN for unlisted numbers, addresses, roommates and family members.

These are the main site categories, use as many as you need, starting with what is most appropriate. Some of these lead directly to searches or directory listings, the others have more options to refine your search.

There are many opportunities here to find someone and we hope it's all very helpful to you. One of the most common mistakes made is not looking in enough places. Often times, folks like to travel for crime or get into trouble while away from home, checking surrounding counties or cities might reveal more than you expect, but should at least give you more piece of mind knowing you exhausted all possibilities.
If the person you are looking for happens to live near the border to another state, visit that as well and go through the closest locations to them. free people search site copyright 2014 Real Free Networks all rights reserved
