History Of The Crawford County Clerk and Register of Deeds Office

The duties of the county clerk/register of deeds have roots back to the times of the Magna Carta in England. Historically, state government has placed the responsibilities of receiving, storing, retrieving and safeguarding the public records upon the county’s clerk and register of deeds by statute. These duties consist of maintaining all circuit court legal records, registration of some business entities, recording military DD 214 forms for our veterans,  processing license applications to carry concealed pistols, and all records relating to birth, death, and marriage, occurring in Crawford County.

In addition, the Clerk also acts as clerk to all official county boards, including the Board of Commissioners and Elections Commission. Some of the millions of documents safeguarded by the Crawford County Clerk/Register of Deeds date back to 1879, the year Crawford County was organized. The offices of county clerk and county register of deeds are combined as allowed by law and is one of 31 Michigan counties to operate a combined office.

Crawford County Register of Deeds is responsible for the recording and management of all real estate documents per year with literally thousands of documents stored dating back to the original U.S. government land patent.
