Scope and Content

Since 1888, Utah law has required that each county recorder keep an "entry book," in which he must immediately report in order every document he records. (Laws of the Territory of Utah, 1888, chapter XLIX, section 1). Each entry in the Washington County fee and entry books has been assigned a corresponding consecutive file number. Each entry names the parties involved, indicates the kind of transaction (or kind of instrument), and provides a legal description of the property involved. Each entry gives the date the document was created and the date and time it was recorded. It reports book and page numbers where documents were recorded in deed or other official record books, and indicates the amount of the fee paid for the recording.

Arrangement

Numerical by file number with numbers assigned chronologically.
