Recorded documents are microfilmed as a permanent record; since 1999 records have been electronically imaged. The original document (with the exception of birth, death and marriage records) is normally returned to the owner. However, there are documents that are kept permanently or for a specific period of time, as in the case of maps. All records are indexed by the year recorded and by the names of the principal parties to the document.
Public records can be accessed by doing a search online or in person by visiting the recorder’s office. Certified copies of vital records (birth records, death records and marriage records) are available for purchase. However, the state only allows certain individuals to purchase an “authorized” certified copy.
