Clatsop County Records Inventory

Clerk and Recorder Official Filings

1967-[ongoing]

Series documents the filing of transactions, authorized by statute, with the clerk or recorder of the county for the purpose of making the transaction a matter of public record. Information includes dates filed, type and description of transactions, filing numbers, names of parties involved, amounts charged or assessed, and clerk or recorder's signatures. Series may also include alphabetical indexes that contain volume and page numbers where recorded and names of individual filing transactions. Transactions include records that were previously maintained separately, such as mortgages; deeds; military service records; federal, mechanic's, and road improvement liens; mining claims; satisfactions; judgment assignments; notarial commissions; medical and ministerial licenses; oaths; and affidavits of publication. This series is commonly referred to as the Book of Records.

Beginning in 1967 deeds, mortgages, mining claims, water rights, board of county commissioners proceedings, and military discharges were recorded in the Book of Records. The commissioners proceedings and water rights are no longer included. The records were indexed separately until 1982.
