Grantor-Grantee Index
A set of records found in the county land records office, listing current and past owners of all parcels of real estate in the county. You can find information about the ownership of real estate by looking up the name of a grantor (person selling or leaving the property) or grantee (buyer or inheritor). These records, once kept in large bound books, are now generally on microfilm or digital media.
