Register of Deeds

Welcome to the Manistee County Register of Deeds Office. We hope that you find the information on these pages to be useful and informative.

Public Notice

As of May 5, 2020, in almost all situations it is not necessary to personally bring your documents to the Register of Deeds Office for filing. It is acceptable and legal to mail your completed documents to:
Register of Deeds
415 3rd Street
Manistee, MI 49660

Please call if you have questions about the procedure and cost.

Vault Closure & Online Access

The vault will be closed to the public until further notice. You may request copies of documents, starting at $7 each, or access the information online. This is a pay for view site and the information is available from 1978 forward.

In-Person Restrictions

If you feel you need to come in you must wear a mask. No mask, no service. There will be no more than two people at a time allowed into the office. Do not bring children or individuals that are sick with you.

No Exceptions

These rules are put in place to keep you and the staff safe. They are black and white with no exceptions. Again, I would strongly recommend you call this office before making an unnecessary visit.

This won’t be forever but we need to be diligent. You have the options listed above, so business will continue as it has since the shut down was ordered. It is a new way of doing our business, but with patience and common sense, we will all get through it together.

Stay Safe,
Marylynn Wrzesinski
