Birth Record Search
You’re here because you are looking for public records on a person or place. Don’t worry I will tell you what a public record is and how to find them on almost anyone or anything.
1.) Public Record Databases
Public record databases such as FreeBackgroundCheck.org compile data from thousands of resources to provide users with a searchable database of public record information. You can find out if someone has a criminal history, check a person’s marital status, view recent addresses, find phone numbers, see if a person has filed for bankruptcy, find out when someone was born, find out why someone went to jail and much more. You can start a search for just a few dollars and conduct unlimited public record searches.
As you can see you can conduct a background check on anyone using public records. You can check public criminal records and court cases, view phone numbers, public arrest records, bankruptcies, if they are divorced and more. Below are a few more screenshots and searches you can do.
I did a quick public record search on a person and as you can see it pulled up a ton of results such as if the person is married, if they are a home owner, date of birth, occupation, phone number, address, email address, criminal history and much more. I just wanted to show you some of it.
As you can see there are many different types of searches that you can do once you become a member for a few dollars. You can start your public record search here.
Pipl public record searches are pretty awesome too (just watch out for the advertisements). You can search for public records by name, username, email or phone.
I did a quick search for John Smith and Pipl came through and pulled up the results.
Now I’m going to click on one of the results just to give you an idea of what type of public records you can get.
You can see how old the person is, view a nice photo, see the person’s career, education, cities he’s lived in and people who they are associated with. If you want more in-depth information like FreeBackgroundCheck.org gives then you will have to pay. As you can see the personal info, online photos, social profiles, and contact info is “sponsored”. But not bad at all for a free public records search.
With Spydialer you can do a reverse phone check, email address lookup, address search and people lookup. The results are pretty basic and mostly lead to sponsored results but it does provide some useful results for free such as email, address, and phone searches. You won’t find any in-depth information but you can get basic results for free but you are limited to how many searches you can perform. Also, pretty cool feature is you can hear a person’s voicemail without having to call the phone yourself.
Search by phone, people, address or email. In this case, we’re going to search for people to give you an idea of what you’re working with.
So now you have to choose the person you’re searching for by a basic location. So if you have more than one person with the same name in the city you’re searching for then this is going to be a lot harder to figure out. So now I clicked on one of the results and I’m then led to some sponsored results on the side (I cut the ads out on this screenshot) and then a basic address, some possible relatives and a link to spydial the phone number.
Now I clicked to spydial the phone number and I get to hear the person’s voicemail. Pretty cool.
2.) Government Resources
All in all the people search is pretty useless. However their phone number search, email and address search are much more worthy of your time.

- Local City & County Government Websites
Your local city and county government websites usually will have links and resources for the public to access records such as property records, marriage records, arrests, warrants, sex offenders, deaths, unclaimed property and more. It’s easy to do a Google search for these type of websites. Just type in your city or county and type in the type of records you’re looking for after that. You will then be shown a list of your local resources that are available.
For one reason or the other, you’re wanting to find out when someone was born. You could be in a new relationship and have already forgotten when your new bae’s birthday is. Well, don’t worry I will show you how to find someone’s birthday even if you don’t want to ask them.
1.) Do a Birthday Lookup by Gaining Access To Public Records
You can search the database at FreeBackgroundCheck.org and find almost anyone’s birthday without asking them. Once you’re a member for a few bucks then you will gain access to the member’s area. In the member’s area, you can easily find out a person’s date of birth in just a minute or two by conducting a background check on them.
Just type in the person’s name and state and you will be shown some results. Choose the person’s name and click view details.
Once you click “view details” then you will see the person’s birthday plus other information about the person.
That is one way to look up someone’s birthday by their name pretty easily. It’s not free but it will only cost you a few dollars and it’s accurate and quick.
2.) If You’re Friends On Facebook Then This is Very Obvious
Obviously, if you are friends on Facebook then you should be able to find out when the person’s birthday is. Pretty simple and self-explanatory.
3.) Talk About Birthdays
Casually talk about birthdays and you may get the person to spill the beans about when their birthday is. You can say something like “I love being born in the springtime but I hate the rain.” Then wait and see what they say. They may drop some hints about when they were born.
4.) Ask to See Their License or ID
Just one look at a person’s license and you will know the person’s birthday without having to look it up online. You can talk about how crappy your license photo is and get them to show you theirs. Sneaky but effective. Whats even better it’s a totally free way to lookup someone’s birth date.
5.) Ask Friends and Family
If you don’t want anyone to know that you don’t know the person’s birthday then you may not want to ask anyone else because they will probably spill the beans sooner or later. But if you can trust a friend or family member not to tell the person then feel free to ask if they know the person’s birthday. Easy free birthday lookup lol.
6.) Celebrity Birthdays
Ask them if they share a birthday with a celebrity. They may and then you’re golden. Just Google the celebrities birthday and you’ll know.
