The Recorder office has a full book tract index for all registered parcels. Torrens documents are also entered into a computer index that searches by grantor, grantee, document number or legal description. A public terminal is available in our office for searches in this index. Our staff is available to give you a quick tutorial so you may use these records quickly and efficiently. If you have the need to search this database often, it is also available on the internet on a subscription basis. If you would like more information on this service, please see the LandShark application.
