    Aug 28, 2015

    There are a few ways you can check whether someone has been arrested. If you already know where the arrest happened, you can then request arrest reports directly from the police department. If you just want to see if the person is currently in jail, the Shelby county sheriffs inmate search is just one example of open searches. The county sheriffs site lets you search active inmates and recent bookings. If all you have is the location, you can use crime mapping, zero in on the location and get the booking number and the department which took the arrestee into custody. Thereafter you can use the booking number for the arrest search. There are lists of booked individuals available through feeds below with the source to see more included. All these searches are open and can be done online, just takes time looking into different databases.

  • Question: Where can I find free marriage records (Memphis, TN)
    By Rochelle
    Nov 07, 2013

    There are several things to consider before making the request. In which county did the marriage occur? How recent is the record or are they archived? Do you need certified copies or not? The county clerk or recorders, state health services, vital records tend to have the birth, death, marriage. There are private services that can be paid to provide it. There is a walk in service at this address: 421 5th Avenue, North, Nashville. You can get the record while you wait. There are kiosks in the lobby of the building where the requests for vital records can be made. Identification is verified by responding to a questionnaire. You can still go to the counter if you are not able to use that system successfully.

  • Question: Closed Businesses (Memphis, TN)
    By anonymous
    Mar 21, 2013

    A reverse address search can be help find what you're looking for. A closed business will have their space up for lease. When the location of the closed business is up for lease, you will be able to see the address once the space is listed. You can find commercial spaces for lease advertised by checking the local paper or any periodical that would show a list of available spaces, including online publications. Once you have the address, you can enter as a general query in search engines or in a directory that would show that area's listings. Chances are that the previous/closed business will still have their business under that address. With a bit of research type work, you have the address and name of the closed business.
