Laurie was appointed Register of Deeds for Florence County by Governor Scott Walker in July 2018. Prior to the appointment Laurie was the Deputy Register of Deeds since 2000.
The Florence County Register of Deeds has one full time deputy in addition to herself. A computerized tract index was implemented in 2010 with the scanning system shortly thereafter. Images of real estate recordings have been back scanned through 1977. The office is continually back indexing and scanning documents as time and resources allow. Online access to the real estate index is provided to customers via the Florence County website. Online access to images is provided by subscription. As of January 3, 2017 you can obtain most vital records statewide including birth, marriage, death and divorce certificates. Please see our website for dates of availability. Genealogists are welcome from 8:30 am to 4:00pm. No appointments are needed.
