Most of the information you will need about a person's history can be obtained in your city or county hall of records or country courthouse, that is, if you know where to look. These are public information and everyone has the right to look at them.

Here is a list of 9 ways to obtain information:

Medical associations: These organizations will confirm an individual's license to practice and the specialties in which He/She has been certified.

Colleges and Universities: Alumni offices will usually confirm the graduation or attendance of any particular individuals, including year of graduation and degree, if that person did graduate.

Credit bureaus: Dunn & Bradstreet, Experian, or local credit bureaus will only provide information if the inquirer is a subscriber and can give the appropriate code number and is prepared to pay a fee.

Property Records: There is one property records office per county. Records include many types of information relating to real estate. For example, records of deeds, judgements and tax liens.

Department of Motor Vehicles: This is a good source of information. You can obtain identification of all vehicles owned by an individual as well as the person's driving record, such as suspensions.

Board of Elections: This is one of the best sources for finding out about a person's date of birth, height, color eyes, place of employment, previous address, immigration status and phone number.

Tax assessor/tax collector: This is a good source of information to find out if anyone owes money on taxes or personal property.

Bureaus of vital statistics: You can find out about a person's birth, death and marriage records.

Reverse phone directories: Many phone companies sell reverse directories listing subscribers by telephone number and address. If you have the number, you can get the name and address of the subscriber. You can also get a phone number, and a name, by looking up the address
