Register Of Deeds

The Register of Deeds Office provides numerous services to the working community and the general public.  By law, the Register of Deeds is charged with the integrity, completeness, accuracy, and safekeeping of all public records recorded in the office. Personally, I am committed to all citizens of Rowan County.

Online Vital Record Requests

The Rowan County Register of Deeds office is happy to announce we are now able to process your online Vital Record copy requests.

Online users may now submit the appropriate information required for obtaining a Certified Copy of a Birth, Marriage, or Death Certificate. The identities of those requesting Birth Certificate copies will be verified (as required by North Carolina Law and office policy) using an extremely secure online verification system. Users will be able to pay for these requests by using a credit or debit card. A small convenience fee will be charged by our vendor for providing this new service.

We look forward to serving you better with this new opportunity for your vital record needs.

Passport Services

The Register of Deeds is excited to announce that as of Monday, May 7th our office is a Certified Passport Acceptance Facility.  We will accept your completed application for a new passport and forward it to the Passport Services section of the U.S. Department of State for an issuance determination.  The Register of Deeds has passport forms available and will also be able to take your official passport photo.  For questions concerning our new program or information regarding the scheduling of appointments, please contact the Register of Deeds.
