The Recorder of Deeds is responsible for recording documents in two main areas: Real Estate and Uniform Commercial Code. Other documents, such as Military Service Discharges, foreign birth certificates, as well as obscure documents like cattle brands, are also recorded here. All documents, except Military Service Discharges, are public record and are readily available both online and in the office for scrutiny.
Records in this office provide data about real estate transactions and historical perspective. Deeds, mortgages, releases, easements, surveys, land plans, restrictions, and road right-of-ways are examples of such documents.
