The public is welcome to come into our office and search the records on file. Available records date back to the early 1830s. Old records up through 1983 can be searched using books indexed by names and legal descriptions. Computerized records from mid-1979 to the present can be searched using available internet and office computer technologies, again indexed by names and legal descriptions. Other indexing by address, pin number or document type is available on some computerized records, but not all. Some microfilmed records are also available for inspection within the office. The staff will provide instruction to assist in your in-office record searching, but are themselves, unable to spend time searching. Please note that, due to a courthouse fire in 1880, some older records are no longer available.
