Pepin County Register of Deeds office became computerized in 1994 when we received our first grant through the Land Records Modernization Program. We installed a DOS based Grantor-Grantee and tracting system at that time. In April of 2004 we updated the DOS based system to a Windows version. In 2004 we installed an imaging system and are working on back scanning of our record books up to the time that we entered recordings in the computer.
