Historical Indexing Project: Complete through 1966

The Worcester District Registry of Deeds is proud to announce that our historical indexing project is now complete back through January 1966. Previously, only records dating back to 1973 were fully searchable on Through a Registry initiative, we have fully digitally indexed all documents recorded between 1973 and 1966.

As always, all of our documents are available online through the un-indexed property search. In addition, we are planning to add a digitized version of the Grantor and Grantee indicies shortly.
