Dear Madison County Resident:
Madison County Recorder, Amy M. Meyer welcomes you to the Office of the Madison County Recorder’s website. Here you will find information regarding recording fees, document requirements, and how to search the record.
The primary responsibility of the Recorder’s Office is to record, index and maintain all documents transferring land in Madison County. Our land record, which begins in 1812, establishes legal ownership to land and protects landholder’s rights. In addition to documents related to land such as deeds, mortgages, liens, trusts, and easements, we also record (DD-214) discharge documents for our veterans, as well as out of county birth certificates and marriage licenses. Because our record is more than 200 years old, there exists a wealth of information for historians and genealogists. We like to say…History begins here.
The extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff of the Recorder’s office are committed to providing you with the highest quality customer service. We take pride in running an efficient detail-oriented office, and understand the importance of getting your documents on record as quickly as possible. Therefore, documents brought into our office before 2:00 p.m. go on record that day.
We are here to help! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 618-296-4475 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.It is our pleasure to serve and represent Madison County.
Amy M. Meyer
