The Register & Recorder's office is requiring that any probating of estates will be done by appointment only. This will help eliminate extra people in our office at any one given time. Anyone wanting to record with our office can do so by e-recording (Simplifile, CSC or EPN), mail or dropping off recordings in the office. Public searching of land records can be done remotely thru Any estate copies that may be needed, please contact our office and we will be willing to email those to you.

Any questions feel free to contact our office at (717) 261-3872. We appreciate your cooperation during this uncertain time. Wishing you and your family good health!
