Oregon Historical County Records Guide
Lane County Records Inventory
Series documents the written interest in land providing security for the performance of a duty or payment of a debt. Records include mortgages; trustee's deeds of reconveyance; indexes, both by mortgagor and mortgagee name; and satisfactions. Information includes mortgagor and mortgagee names, property descriptions, mortgage terms, witness names, certifications, recording and satisfaction dates, volume and page numbers where recorded, and recorder's signature. Series also includes executor/executrix information when mortgages were transferred through wills and mortgages of land to individuals under the provisions of the Donation Land Act of 1850.
Since 1966 mortgages have been recorded in the deeds and records section Microfilm Reels (Clerk and Recorder Official Filings). Deeds, mortgages, subdivisions, mining claims, military discharges, and other records created since circa 1972 are searchable on public access computers available in the Deeds and Records Research Library.
