Database Notes
* Over three million pages of information contained herein have been scanned to block visibility of Social Security Numbers. Although we believe this process was thorough and reliable, we cannot guarantee every SSN was blocked. If you find a visible SSN please notify us at so that we can block it.

* We do not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the document database. Since 2005 we believe document data is largely accurate and complete. Before that date some problems exist in completeness, accuracy of spelling and inclusion of or accuracy of PIN numbers. While searching, use variations of the name and speculate on misspellings to use as you search. When available, always view the image of the document to confirm the information in the record.

* In 2006 we began a major project of indexing documents that were previously on microfilm but never indexed into the computer recording system. To date over 100,000 document records have been recovered and added to the database, covering years 1971 to 2003. Those documents will contain (RDX) in the document type name and will not contain the completeness of data on later documents. Please view the document image for the complete information.
