     The Tazewell County Deed Collection contains deeds, titles, and mortgages from 1830-1929. This information has been recorded at the Tazewell County Recorder’s Office.  However, the collection does not contain all records for this time frame.

     We currently only have an unpublished every name index to the deeds.  Each index entry contains the name with the date of the transaction.  A name appearing in the index could be anyone involved in the transaction - buyer, seller, attorney, witness, notary public, clerk, etc.

     We hope to put the index online in coming months.  In the meantime, we will do free lookups in the index for you if you fill out our deed index lookup request form.  Each form will allow you to request lookups on 5 people.  You may submit multiple forms but we reserve the right to limit processing one form per week per person.

     Deeds range from ½ page to multiple pages. As some deeds are very fragile, an appointment must be made with a TCGHS archivist to see them in person.

     A photocopy may be ordered for $1.00 a page which includes postage. Copies are single-sided only.  Emailed scans are not currently available.

     When you request a copy, an archivist will inform you of the total number of pages and the cost. Please include a phone number, e-mail address and/or self-addressed stamped envelope with your request.  We recommend contacting us by email or mail since our archivists are volunteers who may not always be at the library when you call. 

If you'd prefer to pay online rather than mailing in your payment, we can send you a PayPal invoice (we'll add a $1 handling fee to cover the PayPal fee).

     We cannot guarantee the name on a deed is the person you’re looking for. Please see our research services if you need further research done.
