Land Records

The Land Records department is responsible for recording legal documents according to the Kentucky Revised Statutes. Some of the documents recorded in our office are mortgages, deeds, wills, marriage licenses, liens, releases and corporate records. Our records go back to around 1792, the year Kentucky became the fifteenth state. These records can be found in three formats; in books, on microfilm or digitally imaged in our computer system.
