free people search on the internet usually starts with one of the many free people finders that can be found online today. Many times, this type of people search provides little if any useful information. Often the information is old, outdated or sometimes just plain wrong!

If the person you are looking for has never had an internet account or never bought anything via the internet then there is a good chance your free people search will fail. If a telephone number or address is all you need then maybe(if the number is NOT unlisted) you can find it but this type of information is available in your phone book or a quick call away at operator assistance. If you are looking for more in-depth information such as vehicle registration informationsocial security numbers, or a complete background check then you are out of luck…unless you know where and how to look!

There are many resources available online that can provide useful information for your people search but often it is spread out or hard to find if you don’t really know where to look or what to look for. This is the area our free people search tips and free people search tutorial try to cover. We strive to provide as much accurate and understandable information as possible all located in one place. With a bit of time and desire, anyone can use the information found here to conduct their own investigation.

Much of the information can be found on the internet. Some of the information can be gotten for free and some of it requires a fee to access. Some of the best information you can get for your free people search is not found on the internet at all but but is available freely as public records(there are places on the internet where you can get access to public records but most charge a fee). We suggest viewing the tutorial on “Using Public Records – Tutorial” as your first step before continuing with the free people search tutorial. Much of the information found there will be useful when reading the upcoming section on free people searches.
