Q: How do I find a persons real name? Douglas NE
by sandy
A:By obtaining official records, you can see the full name as recorded by the county of state. A lot of factors depend on how much about the person you already know. Property ownerships are usually open to the public, but, once again, some areas will have an automated search online you can use anytime and others you have to go there in person.

Q: What are the crime stats in magnet Nebraska
by mark
A:The area may be too small and without enough population. There are only 57 residents in that village. The official name is the village of Magnet. There are stats of the county which can be looked at. If the police agency or any government department has the crime rates, it would be public record. You can see the crime rates of the surrounding areas by using a crime map. These are websites which show icons on a map where crimes have occurred. All law enforcement agencies do not participate, but you can see nearby departments. These nearby departments are Grand Island, Omaha, Lincoln, Des Moines and few others.

Q: Are there any Thayer or Selby families living in the Wauneta area? My grandparents, Poe Otis Thayer and Malinda (Lennie) Selby Thayer, left Wauneta for Oregon in the 1890's. He left first traveling by covered wagon, along with his two brothers. I think their names may have been George and Frank. Grandma followed with two or three children, by train. She was his second wife, his first wife having died. I will be visiting Wauneta in September and would enjoy meeting anyone someone who may be related to me.

Q: Where can city employee payroll be found. Nebraska City
by visitor question
A:Public employee pay/salaries are public record. Easy to find the ones for the state employees and even some counties. Smaller venues do not put the same amount of information online, maybe due to the extra cost or not enough interest. However, they are clearly considered public record, so there’s no ambiguity there. The request may have to be submitted formally. Here’s a link to request city data http://www.nebraskacity.com/city_of_Nebraska_City/City_of_Nebraska_City.aspx. Emailing the city directly may be most helpful since there can be varying processes for different areas.

Q: How do I know if someone is dead or in jail
by dumoked
A:To see prisoners under the custody of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, you can conduct an online inmate search freely here http://dcs-inmatesearch.ne.gov/Corrections/COR_input.html. Some county law enforcement/sheriffs also have detention facilities that hold prisoners also, but usually temporarily or short term. You can request death records from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, however, there are restrictions on who can order them. Also, they issue official certificates which is not necessary when only looking for information. For death information, there are several approaches available. Periodicals is one that can be looked at online since so many publications have their articles on the web such as obituaries. There are indexes to cemeteries that reveal names. You can look at any number of name based databanks online, the location is important. In many cases a simple people finders search can reveal addresses, all you need is a place to start your search or other specifics that pertains only to the subject of your search. Name search databanks can be found state or county wide depending on the agency. One example is business ownerships using the Nebraska Secretary of State's Office name search https://www.nebraska.gov/sos/corp/corpsearch.cgi?nav=search. Localized searches such as property information can be found on the county's official site. If you use a public record site, you can see many of the available portals to name searches that are available online. This saves you from having to find it yourself without being familiar with where to look for them.

Q: how do i get records on a person (Nebraska Hall Grand Island)
by rob
A:Depends on the type of record you’re looking for. Different records are kept in different places and departments. Criminal records can be obtained using the state’s criminal background check here https://statepatrol.nebraska.gov/criminalhistoryreports.aspx. You can request documents such as property ownerships from the register of deeds, which are county offices. There is also access to court's state or county to conduct a search by the public. This also depends on the type of case and level, whether county or in state or bankruptcy which is considered federal.

Q: What is the website for actually FREE public or criminal records? (Lincoln NE)
by Amb
A:Public or criminal records are initially obtained from government agencies or departments. Whether federal level state, county or city. Basically, they come from the government. How readily available the records are to the public is left up to the agency so long as it conforms to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and/or the state's own transparency laws. Some agencies do not have the funds or other means necessary to make the records available online free and convenient to requestors. Some agencies may not prioritize making records available to ease retrieval. Therefore, some records are easier to obtain than others. Some are completely free online instantly, such as verification of professional licenses, business data from the secretary of state etc. The fees imposed on the requestor is based on the agency's budget, cost of maintenance, staff and so forth. The public record websites are not the same as background check websites although they cover many of the same records. Public record websites and background checks companies are different ways of searching for records with their own positives and negatives. Background check companies gather information they believe best completes their obligation to provide the customer with records under their coverage. These private entities pay for some records, some are gathered from an agency where there's an agreement therewith and any other means feasible. Public record websites list the sites where you can request the record yourself. This includes listing as many sites with free instant online searches as they can. With background check companies you get a package of searches with one fee and order. Public record sites allow the user to gather their own data, specific to their needs and costs. When you do your own search, depending on the state, you can obtain information from accessing the agency's databases directly. However, when you're looking to add a criminal history searches, you may end up having to pay the agency to provide you the records. For example, an employer is more likely to select a background check company as they look for a uniformed standard check for all their prospective employees and to save time from having to conduct their own search. Background check companies can also conform a type of search that would best suit a regular client. Private individuals looking for someone, just to verify a contractor's license, just a deed that may be online and more can benefit from public record sites. Since the websites that provide the public information are government agencies, ranking high on general search engine results and be easily visible to users is not a priority. Many valuable databases that provide information sought by the public need to be looked for beyond a search engine's general query. This is where the public record site can be helpful. You can peruse a list of what you can get online for free or the next best available resource found. So the answer to 'are there any true free online records' is yes and no, depends what you're looking for and where it is.
