Our office is ever-changing as we have began digitizing records, so keep checking back for new updates. Wilkes County Register of Deeds went online July 1st, 2017.

We are here to serve you. Please feel free to contact me or my staff for any assistance. We will be happy to help you. 

Stop by the office and research some family or county history. Our land records date back to the formation of the county, 1778. Our Birth and Death records date back to 1913, with some Delayed Birth records having earlier dates. We have marriage license dating back to 1882 and some earlier record-only entries. You just never know what kind of fascinating History you will find in our well-kept records.
