Researching Historic Deeds
In 2021, Jeanne Sorg, Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds gave a presentation on researching historic deeds in Montgomery County, PA.
The lecture, titled “Researching your Roots at the Office of the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Office” provided an overview of the types of documents that are recorded with the Recorder of Deeds, and how to search the database for current and historical deeds on your property.
Records date back to 1784 and are mostly public. Historical deed research, as well as other documents the Recorder of Deeds stores in perpetuity, can be a useful tool in learning more about your home and potential family history.
