Q: where can i go online for FREE background information? Kentucky
by doodle
A: That is a search in itself, but there are easy ways of doing it. The term 'nothing's free' is also true with public records. Since it costs to record, maintain and provide, fess are imposed to cover those costs. Who else is going to pay for it? However, some records are free by coincidence. Court records are a good example. In some venues, it is easier for the department to put the information/cases online rather than to provide it to each individual requestor and charge, such as court calendars, case information and so forth. The department of corrections has free searches of their inmates in custody, released or awaiting release. Some counties will provide property information with a public access to their recorded documents databases. With enough research, free records can be found. It can be made easier by using a public record site that will list as many free sources found. Once again, not all the records are going to be free.
