Free National Sexual Offender Registry - This link will bring you the Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry. This site allows you to perform a free sexual offender search of all states except for Oregon and South Dakota.

Lookup County Name - This free service is provided online by Zipinfo.com. It allows you to enter in either a zip code, or a city and state. It will then provide you with the name of the county for the information that you entered.

BirthDatabase.com - This site allows you to enter in person's name (and if you wish, their approximate age). This free search claims to have dates-of-birth for over 120 million different people. This does not include everyone in the U.S. and they can not guarantee the accuracy of all of the information, but it can sometimes prove useful.
