The Middlesex Registry of Deeds provides for the consultation of documents which relate to the ownership or allowable use of land in this county of Massachusetts as can be referred to on a public basis. As such, people may refer to one of two Middlesex Registry of Deed offices which have been set up for this area, as include both the North Middlesex County Registry of Deeds and the South Middlesex Registry of Deeds.
The North Middlesex County Registry of Deeds is currently administered by Richard P. Howe, the Register of Deeds for the area. The online website for this Middlesex Registry of Deeds service maintains a searchable index which is accessible to and free for use by members of the public and has a scope extending back to 1976 in terms of the land documents to which it refers.
In addition, the North Middlesex Registry of Deeds holds Record Books, which are numbered according to the year from which they hold records. In this regard, the Record Books 1 to 2789 refer to older Recorded Land deeds maintained by the North Middlesex Registry of Deeds. Recorded Land documents which date from before 1855 are held separately.
The South District Middlesex Registry of Deeds is administered by Eugene C. Brune and is based out Cambridge. The South Middlesex County Registry of Deeds maintains an index pertaining to land documents thus received from the year 1974 to that of the present. The South District Middlesex Registry of Deeds index also contains images of documents which date from the year 1986 and is kept updated to the present.
