ATTENTION FIRST TIME USERS!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SEARCH.
With the General Search Screen you can find a document by company name, person name,
county, document type, date range, or any combination of the preceding.
For example, one can find all deeds for John Doe in the county of Lebanon
between November 1, 1997 and July 27, 2004. Most searches are much simpler.
The quickest and most direct way to find a document is to search by company name
or person name.
HOW TO SEARCH BY COMPANY NAME OR PERSON NAME
Wildcards are permitted in the COMPANY/LAST NAME and FIRST NAME fields.
Supported wildcards: Question mark (? - any character) and asterisk (* - any character string).
Example: L?N* will result in matches such as: LANDEX, LENNON, LENNY, LENTZ, LENDING, LAND, etc.
The system limits the number of name matches to 250. Please be
as specific as possible with the name criteria . For example,
searching for all people with the COMPANY/LAST NAME SMITH will probably
exceed this limit and produce an error. However, searching for
all people with the COMPANY/LAST NAME SMITH and the FIRST NAME beginning with
J (J*) will probably succeed.
When searching for a company, enter the
company's name in the COMPANY/LAST NAME field.
Make sure the FIRST NAME field is blank.
Company names are spelled many different ways so use wild cards often.
For example, the word corporation might be entered as Corporation, Corp., Corp, Inc., etc.
Try entering the first word (or two) of the company's name followed by an asterisk (*).
When searching for a person, enter the person's last name
in the COMPANY/LAST NAME field and the
person's first name in the FIRST NAME field.
You must enter something in the FIRST NAME field to indicate
to the system that you are searching for a person.
To find everybody with the same last name,
enter an asterisk (*) in the FIRST NAME field.
The person's title or last name suffix (e.g. - JR, SR, III, EXECUTOR, etc.)
is recorded as part of the FIRST NAME.
Titles and last name suffixes are appended to the end of the FIRST NAME.
In many cases a person may or may not use their middle initial,
title, or last name suffix. To ensure finding these
matches, follow the FIRST NAME with an asterisk (e.g. - JOHN*).
