About Oregon Public Record Searches

The Oregon Open Records Act is the legislation enacted to mandate the public's right to access records, publications, and information of the state government. In an effort to adhere to this law, the state attorney general's website offers extensive information detailing what public records may be requested and how the request process works. Appeals procedures to address cases which result in denial of a request for information are also described. Minutes to public meetings are included as records accessible to the public.

  • Question: How can u verify somone is dead without having to pay
    By Barb
    May 04, 2016

    When you're trying to do the search for free, you'll have to do the digging yourself. Checking local obits, as the national searches haven't been as reliable for me. However, that will only get you so many people,not all. A manual way you can find out on your own is to look for any record of any type. Deceased persons do not accumulate new records, which includes recent addresses. Professional licenses aren't renewed if the person is deceased, and more free searches. You'll need to be your own investigator, and you will learn how as you go and look around, which can be as easy as finding a list of addresses, then you will see relatives connected to that address, which will expand your search.

  • Question: How to find if I have a warrant in Oregon?
    By Travis
    Jan 18, 2016

    Do I Have an active Warrant? The easiest way other than getting stopped by a LEO, is to call the biz number of the state police. They will confirm if there is an active warrant under your name and DOB. They may or may not tell you what it is for. Most of the time they will tell you if it is a warrant for a FTA (Failure to Appear) on a traffic ticket.

  • Question: Want to find out if a inmate is married
    By Krystal
    Nov 05, 2015

    Where was the person married? Statewide vital records have qualifications and will verify the identity of the person requesting regardless of whether they're ordered online, by phone, mail or otherwise. The county clerk is the official custodian of records, including marriage. They each have their own websites and how to look up their records. Marriages from 1964 to 2008 can be looked up under ancestry and does not have the same restrictions. Before paying, a screen will show names of spouse under some of the names. Any bit of information can be helpful if you're looking up for free.

  • Question: Can I get someone else's background records
    By tash
    Aug 05, 2015

    When you do the search on your own, you can see which information is available to you and which ones are not or more difficult. A report that is provided by services can have policies that only provide certain information under their policy, such as employment screening and self checks. What you can do is look up arrests through jail or inmate lists from local and state departments such as police departments and the Oregon department of corrections. Along with these searches, you will be able to see fugitives that are wanted and more. If there's a specific record/information you are looking for, mention it so that others/visitors may offer tips on where to look. You won't know what is out there unless you begin looking.
