The Recorder's office is the home to many public records. Included are land transactions and property ownership, registration and titling for recreational vehicles such as boats, snowmobiles, and ATVs. We issue marriage licenses and house the county’s birth, death, and marriage records. We provide certified copies of those records. You can also perform online real estate document searches.
