About the Register of Deeds office The Lafayette County Register of Deeds was one of the first offices to establish a computerized indexing and imaging system in 1994. A major system upgrade for land records is planned for this year. Access to the index and images is offered online through Laredo and Tapestry. Laredo is mainly for professional customers while occasional customers can use Tapestry to obtain copies of their documents. Many genealogists use the office to study old birth and death records from the 1870’s and marriage records that date back to 1847. Despite a steady increase in workload over the years, the staff remains at two persons; Joe and his deputy.

About Lafayette County:  Lafayette County is located in the unglaciated "driftless" area of southwest Wisconsin, which is the reason for its many hills, valleys and scenic views. Lafayette borders the State of Illinois, has an area of 643 square miles and a population of 16,263, according to 2002 estimates. The county’s two state parks, Yellowstone Lake south of Blanchardville, and First Capitol north of Belmont, are popular destinations for visitors each year. The first permanent settlers arrived in 1824 due to lead mining in the region. Later, dairy farming became prominent and today Lafayette remains one of the leading agricultural counties in the state with 1,400 farms averaging 285 acres in size, and many cheese factories still in operation.
