Thank you for visiting the Allamakee County Recorder's Office Webpage.

The basic duty of the County Recorder is to maintain official records of documents affecting title to real estate.  Our office also works with vital records, Marriage licenses, DNR licenses, boat, ATV, off-road motorcycles, and snowmobile registrations. 

It is our goal to provide accurate information to the public, either in person or on-line.

Individuals are encouraged to go on-line to research recorded documents at Iowa Land Records for records 1980 to the present instead of doing research in the vault.

Access to historical documents dated 1851 - 1979 is now available for public access.  Please visit to view these records.  You will be required to create a user account but no fee is required (similar to Iowa Land Records).
