Current day and historical records play an important part in society. They serve many purposes from tracing our ancestry through to conducting due diligence.
In this digital age, the number of sources available online grows every day. We can check vehicle registrations, find out if someone served in the wars, check eligibility to work, and so much more.
As records are often tucked away in databases, you need to go direct to the source to find the information you are looking for. This is where Public Records comes in. We provide you with ready access to available tools, data-sets and searches covering records of many types.
There are so many reasons to use Public Records
In the workplace, University or home, for research or business, there is something here for everyone. Special case uses include:
There are some excellent collections that have been hand built and compiled by volunteers and organisations over the years. We include these records in the index. With certain styles of research, especially genealogy, they can provide the information you need. Recent records can’t always be accessed through Government sources. Sometimes they can however be found with private organisations. Collections of notices from current day newspapers is just one example.
As each year passes, more information becomes publicly available on the internet. So much so, we have come to expect quick and easy access to just about everything. With Australian Public Records, there are some excellent online sources. Many of the free ones you’ll find readily available online right now available to search. There are some though that do not provide instant access and the information is unavailable online. Criminal Records is one such example where there is a waiting time after purchase. Current and recent records for members of the Defence Force will also take time.
Are you looking for free public records? Or is the information at hand of the utmost importance? We have provided hundreds of free record collections in addition to premium ones which require a fee. In certain areas you will have a choice, and in others no option other than to pay. Where ever possible we provide you with all free options that you can exhaust before moving onto premium options.
Selected areas such as police checks always have a cost attached, however there are free options you can take that will provide you with a brief insight.
If you know of any free resources that you feel would be a good addition to the collection, please contact us and let us know. We are always looking for new collections that may be of use to our visitors.
