In over two hundred years of continuous operation, we have gone from days of scriveners with quill pens to an era of computers and advanced document imaging.

Our objectives in all that time have remained the same: security, accuracy and accessibility for our communities’ land records, and reliable service to the residents of Norfolk County.

As Register, I am committed to carrying forward those traditions and to modernizing facilities and services to meet the changing needs of the public in this new century.
