SEARCH OPTIONS:
Simple Search – The simple search is designed for basic searches by users unfamiliar with the Register’s Office. The user can enter a last and first name only or do a date search, or the user can be more selective and do both a last or first name and a date search to search a specific date range.

Advanced Search - The advance search is designed for users familiar with the Register’s Office. The user can search multiple fields or a combination of fields. Below is the illustration of the search capabilities.

  1. Last Name/Organization – Enter either all or a partial last name or an organization name.
  2. First Name – Enter either all or a partial first name.
  3. Legal Descriptions – Select a field to search using the drop down menu. If more than 1 field is selected, the return will match all the criteria. It will be an "AND" search. In other words, if you enter the value "1" in the lot number field, and "craig" in the subdivision field, the results will be any document that begins in lot 1,11,12,13,14,etc… in the craig, craigs, craig johnson, etc… subdivision. All fields are implied wildcards.
  4. Recorded After – Select a day to start the search. If you want to search beginning Jan-2-2000, enter Jan -2-2000.
  5. Recorded Before – Select a day to end the search. If you want to search documents filed before Jan-3-2000, enter Jan-2-2000.
  6. Document Type – This field is used to narrow searches to 1 or more document types. The default is all document types. Clicking on a type will narrow the search to the selected type. To select multiple types, hold down the CTRL key.
Instrument Search- The instrument search is used to search by entering a book and page, or an instrument number. The result set will return information that matches the numbers entered.
