The Kansas Fidlar eByte – April 2019

  • ROD Office scans Tract Index Books [Onsite Media Conversion process serves to digitize physical media of the ROD repository.]
  • Media Conversion provides Disaster Recovery effort [Scanning the physical record as a duplicated digital file permanently captures the original.]
  • Fidlar solutions encompass the needs of the ROD Office [The longtime dedication to the land recording office permits that Fidlar provides superior products, tools and services to assist with the advancement of land recording methodology.]

We are pleased to share that the Crawford County ROD Office has completed an imaging project that has digitized their Tract Index Books and more from their official repository. Via the Media Conversion processes of Fidlar, partnered with US Imaging, Crawford 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 complete deterioration.

Register of Deeds Sandy Casey has ensured the preservation of these books by applying the scanning process as a method of disaster recovery. Scanning is performed on the original document as to allow for the best possible end result. By digitizing physical documentation, counties will be able to better maintain and preserve the makeup of the local historical record.

Fidlar’s goal has always been to work closely with our partners to provide them with the most powerful solutions that will in turn help them provide a better service to their communities. Our partnerships are strengthened through our abilities to deliver customer-centered support, land records management systems, remote access services, community outreach programs, imaging services, and maintaining technical installations & updates.

“We are pleased to have completed the recent scanning project in Crawford County. The goal of the project was to create digital back-ups of our Tract Index books along with historical Miscellaneous books stored in the office. This way, if anything were to ever happen to the original book, the record would not be permanently lost.  Through this process we can make great strides to ensure that we protect the Official Public Record.” – Sandy Casey, Crawford County Register of Deeds
