I have worked for Walworth County since 11/20/80. I was the Property Lister from 1989 until I was elected Register of Deeds in 2012.
Real estate records are maintained in a grantor/grantee indexing system which begins in 1839. A computer index is available beginning in 1969 as well as document images back to 1935. In 2004 a tract index was created. Birth, death & marriage records for events that occurred in Walworth are maintained. Birth records begin in 1856, death records begin in 1873 & marriages begin in 1839. Ownership & description information is maintained for over 65,000 tax parcels.
