Instead of books, the department’s microfilm and electronic inventories consist of more than 10 million documents dating back to as early as 1826. The Recorder of Deeds Department receives documents from a number of sources, including law firms, government agencies, title companies, lending institutions, and the general public. Almost 90% of documents recorded deal with land related transactions, such as assignments, releases, real estate deeds, mortgages (called Deeds of Trust in Missouri), and liens. The remaining 10% involve different types of transactions such as judgments, powers of attorney, affidavits, agreements, and wills.

All documents that are available online are free of charge for viewing and printing.
