Ohio Public Records

Ohio State Record’s mission is to aid in giving every person the right to detect, obtain, preview and examine state public records, thereby ensuring residents of the state of Ohio are provided secure access in accordance with the Ohio Open Records Law

The main goal of this website is to enable all members of the general public the right to access Ohio state records regardless of their state or country, citizenship status and without having to disclose a reason for their inquiry, unless specifically expressed otherwise.

Ohio State Records contains information concerning the following subjects: criminal records, court records, vital records and state background checks, including over 99 million public records.

Ohio started creating public records in 1789 and these records usually contain information from 88 counties, thereby ensuring Ohio abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all. Furthermore, as digitization becomes more standard - a process began in the late 80s - these records are increasingly available online through third party and governmental websites.
