Have you physically been to a Recorder’s office in the county in which your ancestor resided? Do you really know everything that is in the office?

In the Recorder’s office of Putnam County, Indiana, there is much more than land records! Yes, there are grantor and grantee deed books, with indexes to the books. And, there are mortgages by mortgagor and mortgagee. There are also School Fund Mortgage Records, Miscellaneous Records (includes an index), Records of Wills and Orders of the Court, Release and Assignment Records, Old Age Records, Bond Records, School Commissioners Records, and cemetery deed books.

So, take a look inside! You never know what may be found!
