We have a new page now all about public records searches.
This public data page lists several of the better companies that provide public record searches.
Most of these types of searches can be ordered and performed online.
There are still a few companies that will provide background screenings performed by an individual private investigator, but those types of services are disappearing fast.
If you choose one of the names on our list, especially one of our top choices, you should have good luck in your search.
