Do-it-Yourself Free Background Search Details
- a)One Detail is finding out your subject-person’s lifetime travel history. He could have committed a crime anywhere he has ever been.
- b)2nd Detail is that you could miss important records if you miss any of the locations that your subject-person has been to.
- c)3rd Detail is the amount of work you must do to check every courthouse in those locations.
- d)4th Detail is cost. If the courthouse has digitized their records and published them on a website, then you can often review them for free. But if you must travel to the courthouse, that requires your time and travel costs. Finally, if you want a copy of the record, some courthouses provide free copies and some courthouses charge up to $1 per page of court records.
- So a do-it-yourself background search may cost you a significant amount of money if you want to perform a complete Background Search.

Criminal Background Search:
Criminal records are kept by the Clerk of Courts in each courthouse. We know there are 50 states, 3000 counties, and about 30,000 cities, towns, or townships in the United States. Every city, town, county, state, and the federal government may their own courthouses. That is a lot of courthouses, and some of them do not share their information. However, you are allowed to review it because it is legally supposed to be public information.
If you know where the subject person has lived and traveled, then you know which courthouse records to check.
You will probably want to check out some other records on your subject-person.
What do you want to know about?
Civil law suits
Associates and Business Partners
Marriages and Divorces
Here, you have the same issues that you had with the criminal records. Most of that information is public, and you can review it, but the information is not all in one place. You have to find out where it is, and you may have to go there.
Some companies on the Internet specialize in collecting all of this public information, putting it in their database, and making it available for instant access. For example, Illinois Youth Soccer (www.iysa.org) has a Risk Management publication that refers to BackgroundSearch.com. You can review a person’s background information and get the results instantly on the internet.
