Register of Deeds Office

Cyber criminals attempting to gather your personal information are nothing new when it comes to public government entities. The Register of Deeds office is not immune to this scam – bad actors have spoofed our office in electronic communications in the past. This week however we have heard from multiple members of the public that a new mass email campaign has been sent from one of these bad actors asking them to open an attachment in an email. This attachment can cause harm to your personal computers. For your protection, the Register of Deeds office asks that you delete these and do not open any attachments. Our office does not send out mass notification emails to the public.


The Register of Deeds Office is open by appointment only, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
For appointments or information pertaining to real estate, call:  (608) 267-1519.
For appointment or information pertaining to vital records, call:  (608) 267-8810.
