Deeds

This section contains land deeds, land patents, homesteads, Indentures, mortgages and probate records. The deeds index references Townships, Sections (640 acres) and 1/4 sections.

The archives are updated several times a year as well as the Index. Check the date “updated” on the Index for the last date this archive was updated.

The PDF Index below can be viewed in your browser and searched by keyword without downloading the file by using Control F on your keyboard when the file is open. This function is very helpful with these large files in finding a specific person, subject, place, etc. The Control F Function does not work on photographs or the text embedded in the photo.
