We had a good turnout for Brown County's Land Information Seminar  ("GIS Day").

About 60 people showed up, asked great questions, and hopefully learned a thing or two!

Thanks go to Cathy Williquette, Debbie Gore and others from the Register of Deeds office for helping set up this event. Also, thanks to Museum Staff  Kevin Cullen, Beth Lemke, and Lisa Zimmerman for helping to host the event and giving the exhibit tour after the seminar.  Thanks also to all who showed up and made this a successful event!

Using the Land Records Search site (some handy tips)

Brown County's "Land Records Search" site has been online for almost 14 years now, and has hardly changed at all since it launched.  You probably already figured out these "tips & tricks" for using this site, but here are the answers to the most common questions just in case you don't already know:

Land Records Search site tips:
  1.  Enter JUST a street name if you don't find an address. This will give you all properties on the street, and you can choose correct one from the subset.  This strategy helps you see hyphenated addresses.
  2. If your address search involves a County Highway, usually listed as County Road by the US Post Officeyou will need to enter "CTH" and the name of the highway (Ex: CTH B, CTH GV).   If your search involves a State Highway, you need to enter "STH" plus the name of the highway (ex:  STH 57). 
  3. Do not use any periods or apostrophes in the street name
