Registry website user instructions (part I)

This is the first in a series of blog posts that will provide some practical instruction on the use of the registry of deeds website: – Home page of the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds. Contains information on filing fees, indexing standards, sales & foreclosure reports and a LINK to the statewide land records database (click the yellow “Search” box). – Statewide land records database. Records are added by individual registries of deeds but site is maintained by Secretary of State’s office. The default search is by name, however, other search methods are available (see below).

“search criteria” – An option on the upper left menu bar. Moving your cursor over “search criteria” will display a box filled with search options. The most commonly used besides name search are Property Search (when you have the property address) and Book Search (when you have the book and page number).

“search options” – Also on the upper menu bar. Hover over this and de-select “Popup Image Viewer.”  The default setting on the website is to display images in a popup viewer but the antivirus software on many computers makes this complicated. By removing the check mark from the “Popup Image Viewer” option, images will display onscreen.
