NORRISTOWN – Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg has announced her late summer and fall events which are scheduled throughout Montgomery County. Sorg will take the office’s veteran identification program on the road, as well as the presentation FraudSleuth and Montco Roots: Family and Property History through Deeds.
“Getting out into the community and bringing the services of my office to people is one of my favorite parts of this position,” Sorg said. “I am grateful that we can provide these services every day to the people of Montgomery County.”
Veterans Identification Program
Veterans are encouraged to file their military discharge documents (DD214 or NGB22) with the Montgomery County Recorder’s Office. Documents are stored in the office’s secure database in perpetuity.
Veterans who register their military discharge documents receive a Veterans Discount ID card, valid for discounts at more than 650 Montgomery County businesses. Veterans should bring their military discharge papers and photo identification, such as a driver’s license, with them to the event. The whole process only takes a few minutes.
FraudSleuth is a free property alert service provided by the Office of the Recorder of Deeds. Montgomery County property owners can register using their Parcel ID, which is the unique identifier for their property, and will receive email alerts if a document is registered with our office against the information included in their profile.
Montco Roots: Researching Family History and Property Through Deeds
During this program, Sorg will present the types of documents that are registered with the
Office of the Recorder of Deeds and demonstrate how to search the office’s online database for current and historical deeds on your property. Historical documents contain a wealth of information about family relationships and the history of the property.
