The Legal Records Department is responsible for legal documents which are filed as public record. At the courthouse, most documents are maintained from 1840 to present. Document indexes are available for most document types back to 1840 with few exceptions. Document images are available online for most instrument filings from January 1986 to current date. All deeds from county inception to present are online. Mortgage images are available online from 1986 to present. Sorry, no Veteran records are allowed for security reasons.
