The Missouri Fidlar eByte: August 2016
We are pleased to announce that the Jefferson County Recorder of Deeds Office has performed a large-scale imaging project that has drastically expanded their digital record repository. 730,000+ images have been grouped and named via the GulfStream process and made available in a digital state to county constituents. Recorder of Deeds Debbie Dunnegan-Waters spearheaded the project, appointing trustworthy individuals within her community to regroup and name the records appropriately. By advancing digital documents to this degree, Debbie is providing a precise and accurate Official Public Record.
“I’m very excited to finally have this project completed. The completion of the task is a huge benefit for both my office and my constituents. Digitizing such a large amount of documents lessens the risk that they deteriorate any further than they have due to simple aging. The convenience of searching for a record that has been grouped and named with an appropriate document number is really astonishing. I had a regular external user on the phone and we were able to search for a few random documents and we instantly had images for them. I logged onto Tapestry and got the same exact result! Now, instead of spending time pulling film and making copies, my staff is freed up for the next project.” – Debbie Dunnegan-Waters, Jefferson County Recorder of Deeds
