The Registry of Deeds Office processes information as it relates to the buying and selling of real property. The recording of important documents is one of the oldest functions performed by government. The recording process is mandated and governed by the law of the State of New Hampshire. The data base of the Grafton County Registry of Deeds contains over 3 million images of documents, and over 23,000 images of subdivision plans and surveys. Only copies obtained from the official Registry of Deeds records are considered to be the official public record.

The official records maintained here date from 1773 to present day. At the present time, only 283 books of 4013 remain un-scanned to a digital record. Records from 1773-1879 and 1934 to present day are available digitally. Registry staff works daily to enter the remaining books.

Indexes are available from 1960 forward. In 1959 Register Charles “Bunny” Woods, the longest serving Register, made a difficult decision recognizing that from 1773 forward the information indexed was being done in a manner that would not serve our growing county. All businesses were recorded under B, all towns under T and all churches under C and so on. To correct this system error would require present staff to re-index 186 years of daily entry. We are near completion of the indexes of 1955-1959. To research the oldest record one must either know the book and page you are looking for or begin the search in the present and work their way back through time by book and page notation.

NOTICE:

Each document page that is copied from the Grafton County Registry’s website without the established and posted compensation represents lost revenue that would have offset the annual county tax to the citizens who have invested in the database/library for 242 years. It is with these citizens in mind that we implement the below changes to our system.
