Joseph G. Boll has been Register of Deeds of Lafayette County since 1989. Prior to being elected, he was employed by General Information Services as an Insurance Inspector. Joe was born and raised in Lafayette County, attending Darlington High School and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, graduating in 1976 with a degree in Business and Sociology. Joe and his wife Judy have three children. Joe is a member of the Darlington Fire Department, the Knights of Columbus, and the Darlington School Board. He enjoys reading, playing golf, civic and family activities, and he has a great sense of humor.
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.
