The Indiana Fidlar eByte: May 2017
We are pleased to announce that the Marion County Recorder’s Office has completed a large-scale imaging project that has digitized documents back to 1821. Via the Media Conversion processes of Fidlar, Marion County will be able to ensure that they have a digital copy of their physical documents in case they are ever lost due to natural disaster or from normal wear and tear. Each original document was scanned, cleaned up, named and imported back into the county’s system. By digitizing decades of the Official Public Record, County Recorder Kate Sweeney Bell has ensured that it will be around for many future generations and made it more accessible to her constituents.
“It is my responsibility to ensure these records are maintained in perpetuity. Rescanning the records to a digital format will provide greater access for the public and help preserve our county’s oldest land records for generations.” – Kate Sweeney Bell, Marion County Recorder
