Register of Deeds

The Register of Deeds office provides a standardized, permanent record of real estate ownership and transfers in Union County. Our office records deeds, deeds of trust, cancellations, plats, assumed names, powers of attorney and other miscellaneous documents related to real estate. Our office also records and issues birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, marriage licenses, military discharges and maintains the records of notary public commissions. The Register of Deeds office has served Union County since the County was formed in 1842. The Register of Deeds is an elected official who serves four year terms.

I have been honored by the citizens of Union County since 2004 to serve as Register of Deeds.

I believe public service is a public trust and it must be proven every day, every year and throughout all of your life.

I hope you find this website helpful and user friendly. If there is anything I or my staff can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Sincerely,

Crystal D. Gilliard
