A big welcome to the Bartholomew County Recorder's office!

Please join us in welcoming Anita Hole, Bartholomew County Recorder, and her office to the family of Doxpop partners!

The Bartholomew County Recorder's Office recently completed a local software conversion that allowed us to add them to the Doxpop Public Access System. This will make research much easier for researchers who previously had to look in more than one place to do a complete search.

Both images and index information for all documents filed on or after January 1, 1983 is now available online.

Anyone wishing to look up recorded documents on-line may visit http://www.doxpop.com to use the service. A low-volume search plan is available for free, with higher-volume subscriptions available to commercial users for a fee.

In addition, Bartholomew County citizens may now use the Doxpop Property Watch Service at no cost. The property watch service helps prevent property fraud and identity theft by allowing people to set a watch for any new documents filed at the Recorder's office referencing their property or name.

Anita Hole has worked with Doxpop to provide these enhanced access services at no cost to Bartholomew County.

Please join us in taking the Wayne County Foundation's Money! (And giving it to JACY House.)

We slipped in just under the wire on this one, and we hope you'll join us!

In their 2015 Challenge Match Program, which ends tomorrow, the Wayne County Foundation is matching donations for 27 local organizations.

One of these, JACY House, is a particularly important and deserving organization. The mission of JACY House is to provide a non-intrusive, non-threatening safe environment for interviewing victims and/or witnesses of suspected child abuse.

At Doxpop we have court case data for most of the state of Indiana. The human stories behind this data make it painfully clear that abuse of children places them at serious risk for becoming juvenile offenders, and then in turn becoming abusers themselves in a heartbreaking vicious cycle.

We cannot just look at this data and not be moved to action, so Doxpop has donated $500 to JACY House, which will grow to become $1,000 with the WCF match. We hope their work will break this painful cycle before it starts.

We think the legal professionals we work with will see this need just as clearly as we do. Will you join us today in making sure JACY House is able to take full advantage of this matching donation program before it expires?

If just nine more businesses will join us at the same level, they'll get the entire match.

Time is short, with the match challenge ending tomorrow, so please use the Wayne County Foundation's web site to make your donation right away. Here is the link to their donation site:
