Hancock County Recorder
Tracy Coldren has worked in the Hancock County Recorder's Office since 2000. She took the oath of office in January 2017.

The County Recorder is required to record and maintain accurate land records that are current, legible and easily accessible. An important aspect of the Recorder's work is to index each document so it may be readily located. Accurate indexing makes it possible for persons searching land records to find the documents necessary to establish a "chain of title" (history of ownership) and ensures that any debts or encumbrances against the property are evident. These invaluable records are utilized by the general public, attorneys, historians, genealogists and land title examiners.

In some counties, certain property is registered under the Torrens Act. This "registered land" has boundaries certified to be correct; title is guaranteed by a state insurance fund. Torrenized land records are the responsibility of the County Recorder.
