Q: Looking for the court records on domestic case back in the late 1960's
by Helen
A:If you are nearby the court, you can do the search in person. Most courthouses maintain a separate website or have a webpage within a related site, such as the city's or county's. Questions such as the time span which is covered should be on their site, saving the time to finding out in person. If the records are archived, it is not necessarily bad news, it can be even easier to get them since the same privacy issues may not even apply. Before the net, many people looking for records would make trips to the courthouse. Domestic issues, such as divorces to criminal convictions and settlements. Even today, you can still find out more by going to the court's physical location. You can check out a file and request only what you need, while having the entire case in front of you. The way searches are conducted, records requested and so forth is up to the court and their procedures in place. Laws can also vary from one area to another.

Q: Birth Records June 1954
by Gary Lee Knerr
A:The obvious answer would be one of the ancestry tracking websites. But if you're asking on here, it's probably after you've thought of those avenues. If, for whatever reason you're looking for old archived birth records and alternative sources, the history itself can help. How much do you know about the person in which you're trying to find information about? If the person you are searching falls in a certain group, of Irish decent for example, there are historical websites which are focused on a specific topic, ethnicity, industry or part of a historical event. Another example is if the person fought during the civil war, there are websites specifically for that purpose alone. Depending on where you are, Kentucky is one area where you can find births and christenings from 1911 at the state's office of vital statistics. Their website is self explanatory, open for public use and official record requests.

Q: How is Sumner Ave Ocean Seaside Heights
by Mrs. K

Q: How safe is Seaside Heights?
by Mrs. K
A:Seaside Heights is in New Jersey, not really known for the best areas, so the concern is understandable. What are your needs? Are you moving a family there and need to look at school performance? Is looking at the local economy helpful? The cost of the average home? Is crime the only concern? There have been comments in the past about why wouldn't someone look at the area's crime rates. The reason for that is when the purpose of the research is for commercial property/business location. There are many companies which have their place of business where they would never consider living. That's when the crime rate is not as important and the area's economy, freeways, infrastructure and others that would benefit an individual business or commercial area. Are you moving with children? Many look at offenders which may be living nearby where children will be. Crime mapping is a great source that includes Seaside Heights and its surrounding areas. There's no cost or membership to sign up of required, even though you can and get more bells and whistles to go with your search. Also, Seaside Heights has a casino, beach water park and amusement center. Crime reports mapping also allows a viewer to zero in on the specific area to the point where you can see photographs of streets, shops and other structures which can give a visual feel of the city. I looked at Farragut Avenue / North Ocean Avenue and was able to see the stores, boardwalk, cars, street and more. The condition of structures, roads, types of population businesses cater to is great if you know how to process the information that you're seeing. I noticed hotels right across from the water which I see as a having a tourist influence.

Q: How to opt out of information being sold to websites
by Tanya
A:Background check companies have an opt out option. But they are not the source, therefore the information about you will appear in many other company’s search results/reports. Which information and from where makes a difference. In the case of criminal records, opting out from a few background check companies will not do anything to stop other companies or individuals from accessing the state’s central repository. This is why some attempt to expunge their records first, then they will begin to opt out of companies. Lawsuits are similar in that any company or individual can go to the courthouse or the court’s website and request cases found under a particular name. An asset search can be as simple as requesting property/real estate information from the recorder’s office. Still, opting out of background check reports from company to company can be very helpful as there are only so many top major services that are used when conducting background checks. But it is only a partial solution as an individual can request criminal records directly from the state police regardless of how many background check companies you have opted out of. here’s the link to the state police records http://www.state.nj.us/njsp/about/serv_chrc.html. This service is open to the public and can be requested by a business. It is also less expensive than using a background check service, therefore, persons aware of this service will gladly use it.

Q: what office do I contact in closter, nj to obtain a death certificate.
by Marion
A:You can save time but requesting the death record from the New Jersey Office of Vital Statistics and Registry without having to be concerned about which county to request from http://www.state.nj.us/health/vital/. Death records from this source go back as far as 1901. Records from 1848 to 1900 would be held as the state archives here http://www.nj.gov/state/archives/cathealth.html. You can make the requests online and depending on whether you’re seeking a certified copy or not, there are some guidelines and qualifications. Genealogical request can also be made from the state’s vital records office. Online requests take 15 to 22 business days, which the department mentions is faster than requesting them in person.

Q: Where should a background check be ordered when the subject of the search has recently relocated to New Hampshire?
by ted
A:A primary step in conducting a background check is to find all addresses and residences under that person. If the person has recently relocated to the state of New Hampshire, there are probably few records to be found. There are instances where looking into more than one state may not be avoidable. Another avenue to take is requesting a national criminal search from the FBI http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks/backgroundchk but a restriction of this service is that only the person itself can request the record check. Criminal searches are relatively inexpensive if ordered from the state’s law enforcement which ends up costing less than ordering a full background check from state to state.
