Our office takes great pride in recording all real estate documents in a timely manner. We have several erecording partners; see links on our website under online services.
We also offer online searching for real estate records 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Two different programs are available via our website, Laredo and Tapestry. Tract indexes are also on our website, accessible 24 hours a day.
To protect against property and mortgage fraud, the Green Lake County Register of Deeds Office provides Property Fraud Alert, a notification service to alert the homeowner of possible fraud.
We are diligently working to add documents to our real estate records database and currently have documents indexed back to December 1985.
We also process death and marriage records that occur in Green Lake County and issue all vital records (birth, death, marriage and divorce) for past and present residents of our county. Our office is also, where all military discharges should be put on file.
Vital records are available at Green Lake County Register of Deeds. A new law effective Jan. 1, 2017 makes it easier to obtain vital records, i.e., birth, marriage, death and divorce records. The law, statewide issuance, allows residents who were born, married, divorced or died in Wisconsin to obtain their vital records from any Register of Deeds Office. Birth certificates from as far back as 1907 are available, death records dating back to 2012, marriage certificates back to 2014 and divorce certificates from 2016 will be available through the Green Lake County Register of Deeds. We have a link on our website to Official Records Online to order your vital record online with a credit card. You can come in person to the office as well.
In April 2013, we started accepting credit cards for copies of vital records and copies of real estate documents at the Green Lake Register of Deeds office.
