In June of 2001, the Register of Deeds office started optical imaging of all documents. This allows all of the documents from that point on accessible via the internet. Currently we are working on back scanning historical documents, making even more available over the net. This advancement will make it possible for our customers to get the information they need while at their computers at home. It is our goal to provide efficient and friendly service to our customers from in and out of Crawford County.
