Midland County, Michigan

Midland County is located in the state of Michigan. The county was formed in 1831; however, it was not organized until 1850, and that 1850 organization “was never implemented”. It was not until early 1855 that the county was organized. The county’s name is due to its closeness to the  Lower Peninsula’s geographical center. Midland is the largest city in the county and also the county seat. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a population of approximately 83,629 people and a total area of 528 square miles, of which 12 square miles is water and 516 square miles is land. Midland County borders the following counties: Gladwin County to the north, Bay County to the east, Saginaw County to the southeast, Gratiot County to the south, Isabella County to the west, and Clare County to the northwest.

The Midland County Clerk is elected for a four-year term and is charged with the responsibility of maintaining all documents related to vital records (births, marriage and  deaths records), assumed names, co-partnerships, and military discharges. The office of the clerk is also responsible for issuing and filing marriage licenses. In addition, the clerk is the Clerk of the Circuit Court and serves as the Clerk of the Board of Commissioners. Unlike the clerk, the Register of Deeds is the official recorder of all legal documents pertaining to the transfers and encumbrances of all real estate property within Midland County.  Some of the records maintained by the Register of Deeds include but are not limited to subdivision plats, condominiums, land surveys, and section corners.

Public records from 1971 through the present can be accessed online (documents with watermarks). These documents can also be purchased and printed but without watermarks. Records from 1957 – 1972 can be accessed by searching card indices at the clerk’s office or by viewing them online through an Adobe Reader system. Indices for documents recorded from 1855 – 1957 are available to search through reviewing the old journals located in the clerk’s office or online. To access the records, you will have to do a public records search online through the Midland County Clerk Website.
