Microfilm Scanning for County Recorders
Your county clerk serves an important role in the public sector, which can be taken for granted. Your local county clerk issues motor vehicle titles, registrations, marriage licenses, liquor licenses, and ensure elections are conducted according to law. The county clerk records the Board of County Commissioners’ public meetings. These documents could be stored the following formats: microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards, books, or paper documents.
The Electronic Recording Fund is a restricted fund financed by at least half of all document surcharge fees to a special account, which is maintained by the your state’s Secretary of State’s office. The unremitted portion of these fees is used to subsidize the cost of technology for electronic recording.
Clerks can get software which allows users to search for and print records. Users are charged a daily or monthly subscription fee. This revenue helps pay the contract and supports the the scanning, indexing and importing of past records.
If you work at the county clerk’s office, please contact us if you have a desire to digitize your microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards, or documents to import into a system to better engage the public.
