Searching Allen County Recorder's Office Records Online

The Allen County Recorder's Office offers online access to data and documents from Jan. 1, 1970, to present.  Certain records prior to 1970 are also available online.  New documents usually appear online within 24 hours of recording. We currently offer more than 3.1 million documents online.

Online searching is available through two services that offer levels of access designed to meet the varying needs of our customers.  They are:

LAREDO: Laredo is a subscription-based service that allows users to search in much the same way they would at a terminal in the Recorder's Office.  It is designed for users who require online access on a regular basis.

Laredo use is based on minutes, with packages ranging from 250 monthly minutes to unlimited use available.  Users also pay 75 cents per page for each PRINTED.  There is no per-document charge to view documents.  Subscribers must sign a user agreement laredocontract.pdf and the cost for the monthly minutes package recurs until the user cancels their subscription.

Laredo search parameters are the same as those by which users can search in the office.

TAPESTRY:
Tapestry is an on-demand service designed for occasional users. Users pay $5.95 per search and 75 cents per page for each document PRINTED. Documents can be viewed at no charge.  No user agreement is required and there is no recurring expense other than search and document charges.

Tapestry users can search by name, document number, recording date, subdivision name/lot number, parcel number and metes and bounds.

INDIANA COUNTY RECORDER PORTAL: This service provides the ability to search and retrieve documents prior to 1970. Documents prior to 1970 are much harder to search, requiring users to know a fairly specific date range for the document, search an index and find the related book and page number before retrieving the document itself.

All of those tasks have been integrated into a single search screen. Searchers can select from a drop-down menu of date ranges and search by last name. Users can then enter the book and page number in the same search screen and be directed to the specific document they need.
