Oswego County Clerk Information

The office of County Clerk is of vital importance to every citizen of Oswego County. Whether you’re looking for information on records, motor vehicles, statistics, or history, this web site will acquaint you with the services offered and functions performed by the Oswego County Clerk. The general purpose of the County Clerk’s Office is the making and preserving of records, handling and dispensing of certain items and services, and the acceptance and handling of legal papers.

To file public records to the County Clerk: Papers filed with the Clerk are time and date stamped at the receiving desk and are accompanied by a cover Sheet. Cover sheets must be completed by typing or printing with black ink only. Cover sheets must be totally completed before submitting to the Clerk’s office for recording. Recording fees are paid and receipts issued. The papers then go to the record room and are entered into the proper index books by name, alphabetically. If more than one person is involved, they are cross-indexed. These papers are then called “legal instruments.” After being entered in the proper index book, the instrument goes to the microfilm department to be recorded on film. Each full roll of film is developed and checked for clarity and accuracy, then printed and this copy becomes a page in the proper book. The book is shelved in our record room for public use. Normally, original papers filed are returned to the interested party within 4-7 days.

Cover Sheet:

If you misplace or lose the original copy that has been returned to you after recording, you may make a copy of the one we have in our records room. We will certify that it is a true copy of your original and you may keep that with your personal papers. A nominal fee is charged for a copy and a certification of the instrument.
