Welcome to the Wells County Recorder!

Please join us in welcoming Carolyn Bertsch and the Well's County Recorder's Office to Doxpop's online access system!

Wells County is our 42nd Recorder to come online

The Wells County Recorder's Office has transitioned to a new, local software package that allows us to add them to the Doxpop Public Access System. Having now completed that technical conversion, they are ready to increase their public access offerings by making these land records available 24/7.

Scanned images are available to view and purchase, along with a searchable index for all documents filed since January 2006. Additional index records available beyond that date will have images soon. The Recorder's Office is hoping to scan and digitize many more historical documents, so be on the lookout for more data to be added!

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

Proposed rule change would affect e-filing of probate cases.

The Indiana Judicial Branch website has just posted a number of proposed rule amendments on this page. 

Among them is a change to TR 86 that clarifies how wills are to be handled when e-filing, including the question of how long they must be retained.

The proposed change generally matches the process already used by many local courts, and from our point of view looks just fine.

Among many changes to Administrative Rule 9 are a couple of "clean-up" changes to the Notice of Exclusion from Public Access removing references to green paper. We'll make sure to post links to the new versions of those documents on this blog when they are approved.

The Court is soliciting feedback on the amendments until October 1.
