About the Register of Deeds office About the Register of Deeds office: The office is generally staffed by two full-time persons, including the Register of Deeds. An imaging system was installed in July 2000, allowing the office to store documents electronically rather than on paper. The document index, including grantors/grantees and legal descriptions, is being completed for older documents as time permits. Our LandShark document search website allows free access to our document index along with the ability to purchase document images online by using a credit card, establishing an escrow account or by subscription. As of January 3, 2017, copies of birth records for persons born throughout Wisconsin may be obtained at any county Register of Deeds office.
