Gov. Tony Evers announced today his appointment of Julie Gleeson as Ashland County Register of Deeds, replacing Karen Miller who is resigning effective July 12, 2019.
“Julie Gleeson’s 16 years of public service in Ashland County make her an exceptional choice for the Register of Deeds position,” Gov. Evers said. “I am confident that with her dedication to the Ashland community and years of experience, including as Deputy Register of Deeds, that Gleeson has the skills and vision necessary to continue the excellent work at the Register of Deeds’ Office.”
Julie Gleeson has worked for Ashland County for the last 16 years. She has served in the Register of Deeds Office since 2012 and has been the Deputy Register of Deeds since 2016. Previously, she also spent several years as an Assistant Real Property Lister and GIS Mapper for the county. Gleeson is also a Certified Title Examiner with the Wisconsin Land Title Association.
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.
