What Your Register Does

The Register of Deeds is Shelby County’s elected record keeper involving tax liens (State & Federal), property titles, mortgages, bankruptcy documents, marriage settlements, contracts, powers of attorney, real estate conveyances, armed forces discharges & various affidavits. The Register also manages the Shelby County Archives which preserves the history of our county and provides a valuable resource to members of the community researching the past. The Shelby County Register's Office is a fee-based operation and is not generated by taxpayer dollars.

Shelandra Ford: Your Shelby County Register of Deeds

In August 2018, Ms. Shelandra Ford made history as she was elected as the first African-American Female Register of Deeds for Shelby County.
Register Ford’s philosophy encompasses the words of Harriet Tubman; “Every great dream begins with a dreamer, always remember, you have
within you, the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world!”
