Searching

Our records are not currently on the Internet.  Records date back to 1853 and are hand written indexes through 2003.  We have public terminals for searching the Grantor/Grantee records starting in 1988.  All documents are imaged and available on computer to be searched by liber and page.

OUR INDEXES
Grantor/Grantee name indexes are free for your browsing.  This includes our public terminal computers and handwritten index books. We maintain a detailed tract index by legal descriptions.  If you choose to search by legal description rather than Grantor/Grantee index there is a $50.00 per hour charge.  The county board of commissioners set this fee.  These are detailed records by quarter quarter, section, township, and range or by village/city/subdivision.  Not all counties maintain a tract index.
