Back Indexing Project - Phase One Complete

We have completed phase one of our back indexing project. The first phase of the project includes all records from December 31, 1965 to January 1961. If you would like to search for a document from January 1961, simply change the date range on MassLandRecords.com and the index and image will be available for your viewing and printing.

This phase of the project began on January 24, 2008 and has been finished in under a year.

Thanks to our staff who worked diligently to complete this phase of the project so quickly.

Blanket Drive

We are collecting blankets for shelters in Worcester County this Winter.

Various shelters in Worcester County are in desperate need of blankets or fleece throws this year. Blankets are a fundamental necessity in the winter months for many homeless people.

The blankets are a way for the general public to make a critical difference in the lives of these people. To the victims in crisis, the blankets offer immediate relief. In some instances, the blanket becomes their only possession.

Blankets do not have to be new but they should be clean and usable.

If you have any blankets to donate, please bring them to the Registry of Deeds, 90 Front Street, Worcester, MA. Kindly leave them in the boxes provided in the public access area.
