Obtaining Copies of Land Records
To order copies of deeds and other land records, you must know the instrument number or deed book and page number of the document. You may obtain the deed book and page number by searching the land records in the Land Records Research Room or through a subscription to CPAN (see Research page for subscription information). Subscribers to CPAN are able to make non-certified copies from their own computer.
