My name is Renee Bell, I was elected Register of Deeds this year, Prior to this I was Acting Register of Deeds, and deputy since 1995. I have been employed with Washburn County since 1985 working for the Real Property Lister/Mapper, as Deputy County Clerk and as Accountant Assistant. I look forward to continue serving as Washburn County Register of Deeds.
The Register of Deeds office became computerized in January 1997. Our records are scanned and indexed back to 1987. All of the Deeds, Miscellaneous, and Land Contracts are available back to Volume 1, when searching by volume and page or document number, as they have not been indexed. We are in the process of having previous records scanned and indexed daily by volume, page, document number back to 1883. These records are available through LandShark on our website, along with our tract index books which have been scanned. Washburn Co. has been e-recording documents since January 2017.
