Your Recorder is Jennifer Peebles and her First Deputy is Stephanie Pugh.

The primary function of the Recorder’s Office is to maintain permanent public records submitted for recording.  These recordings are the legal basis for determining ownership of real property.  These documents, called instruments, include but are not limited to:  mortgages, deeds, easements, liens, military discharges, subdivision plats, leases, public and private bonds, personal property, and powers of attorney.

It is the duty of the recorder to see that each instrument meets the essential requirements for recording.  Each instrument must be scanned and indexed into a computer system and then microfilmed for archival purposes.  The county recorder prepares and furnishes official copies of any record or instrument when requested.

The recorder is a member of the county commission on public records, which has authority over the preservation or disposition of all public records maintained by the county.

Our office has been working diligently to bring our older documents available online. This is an ongoing process that has taken place over a span of many years. Through Doxpop, we have the following documents available as far back as the books listed below:
