Register of Deeds Public Notice


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are encouraging the public to utilize our online services or the US postal service for certified copies of birth, death, and marriage certificates.   Appointments will be given to those needing to receive certificates in the office.   Real estate records are available for the public to search online.  Please call our office at 252-358-7850 to make an appointment for marriage licenses, notary oaths and filing military discharge papers.   Our on-line marriage license application filled out in advance will minimize time in the office for processing the license.  We are requesting that you call in advance for document recordings and filing death certificates.    The Register of Deeds office encourages the public during office visits to please limit the number to 2 people (including yourself) while conducting business.   We care about our customers and the safety of everyone.  Please contact us at 252-358-7850 and we will gladly assist you or answer any questions you may have.
