Searching Historical Indexes and Recorded Documents

The Recording Department of the Clerk’s office is responsible for recording and archiving public records relating to real property transfers, marriage licenses, plats, liens and many other documents. Documents and indexes between 1879 and 1986 have been digitized and their book and page can be found using our Recorded Documents Index, then using the book and page search our Official Records to purchase and view the image.  However, if you do not need to look up a book and page between 1879 and 1986 you can go directly to our Official Records and search by the following categories:  Book/Page, Amount, Legal Description, Document Type, Reception Number, Name, Parecel, Record Date, or Related Documents. If needed, our Document Search Tutorial will show you how to search and purchase a copy of a document with a credit card.
