Recorder's Office

The primary responsibility of the Winnebago County Recorder is to establish accurate and timely indexing and maintenance of land records in Winnebago County. This task has enabled us to utilize the latest and best means of record keeping. From the hand-written books of the 1830’s to our current electronic format, we’ve securely stored Deeds, Mortgages, Liens, Plats & Surveys, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings, Corporation Documents and Military Discharges, just to name a few. We are committed to the protection and preservation of records governing the ownership of all land within our county. We are continuously working to improve the Recorder’s Office to better serve the needs of the people of Winnebago County.
