Department Head: Patti Ogurchak, Treasurer/Recorder

The Recorder's Office is responsible for recording documents that affect titles to real property, maintain reception records, grantor/grantee indexes, and a land tract index, and provide for the safekeeping of wills. The Office also files burial transit permits.

The Recorder's Office is co-located with the Treasurer's Office, which also serves as a Passport Acceptance Facility.

*Please note: The Williams County Recorder's Office cannot determine mineral ownership/mineral rights; you will need to hire someone like a landman to do that for you.
