About the Register of Deeds office  In March 1999 Dodge County implemented a computerized document imaging and tracting system.  Since 1999 our office has been working on converting paper and microfilmed real estate documents from 1877 thru 1998 to digital images.  Sometime in 2013 we will be completing that conversion.  In March 2007 a new grantor/grantee and tracting index was installed, which enabled us to offer searching via the internet in 2008.  In December 2011, Dodge County recorded it's first electronically submitted documents.

The staff in the office consists of 3 full time employees and 1 part time.  Documents are recorded the same day they are received and returned in 2 days.  Vital records requests are filled the same day they are received if possible.

About Dodge County:  Dodge County was created in 1836 and named in honor of Henry Dodge, then territorial governor of Wisconsin. Final boundaries were established in 1840. The first Court House was built in 1848 by Martin Rich in the Town of Victory, Dodge Centre, which is now the City of Juneau. Dodge County has a population of 85,897, covers 892 square miles, has approx. 47,420 parcels of land and is comprised of 24 townships, 11 villages, and 9 cities.

Dodge County is home to the Horicon Marsh, a national and state wildlife area. Dodge County operates six parks year round. The Wild Goose State Trail is a 34 mile compacted limestone trail on an abandoned railroad grade that runs from the City of Juneau to the City of Fond du Lac. Wildlife, scenery and level surface provide safe, easy and enjoyable biking and hiking for all ages. The trail skirts the western edge of the Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge and Nitschke Mounds Park which contains up to 46 animal effigy, conical and linear mounds believed to have been constructed around 800AD - 1100AD. The mounds represent one of the best surviving examples of the Mound Builders culture that once occupied the Dodge County area. Park development is expected to be completed in phases.
