Back Indexing Project

by @ 1:38 pm. Filed under Registry Ops

The back indexing project is underway. Yesterday, we started the program, which will expand our present index from 1976 downward. We know this is going to be a long time consuming project…but the best thing is, as an entry is completed it is immediately available to the public. This means each day our Grantor/Grantee index will expand and become more usefulness to the public. The significant slow down in business here at the registry has enabled us to start this ambitious project. The slow down has freed up staff that would otherwise have been needed to record and expand documents. We have reassigned five people in total to work on the project…Three from the North Recording Counter, one from the South Recording Counter and one from our Verification Department. Employees work on the back indexing project on an alternating schedule. We have built in the ability to transfer staff back to these recording counters if/when they are busy.
