Private Investigations and Personal Security/Determining his age

Advertisement


Question
I have just met a very nice older gentleman who says he is 67. His mannerisms suggest he is about 5 years older than that. Is there a way I can find out his age? I know his full name and that he was born in MO. I have tried to search MO records and the Mormon records without success.

Can you suggest a way to find his birth date?

Thanks

Jo

Answer
You could ask him for a copy of his birth certificate. There are sources a PI can access, but these require a "permissable purpose" under federal law, and this is not one of the allowable purposes.

A good, local, PI, could probaly find it for you by searching varios public records. That can get expensive. You could also ask to his his driver's license.
