NORRISTOWN – Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg has announced her spring events which are scheduled throughout Montgomery County. Sorg will be taking the office’s Veteran’s Discount ID program on the road, as well as FraudSleuth and Montco Roots: Family and Property History through Deeds presentation.
“I am looking forward to this spring lineup immensely,” said Sorg. “One of my favorite things to do is to share information about the types of documents and what’s available at the Recorder of Deeds office, so the Montco Roots presentation is always fun for me. The Veterans’ Discount ID events and FraudSleuth are great programs, and I love getting out into the community and bringing our services to the people of Montgomery County.”
The Veterans’ Discount ID Program
Veterans are encouraged to record their military discharge paperwork (DD214 or NGB22) with the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds office. The documents are recorded in perpetuity on the office’s secure database.
“A DD214 is the most important document a veteran holds,” said Sorg. “Recording it with my office gives the veteran and their family members instant access should they ever need it.”
Veterans who record their military discharge paperwork receive a Veterans’ Discount ID card, good for discounts at more than 650 business throughout Montgomery County.
Veterans should bring their military discharge papers and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, with them to the event. The whole process takes only a few minutes.
FraudSleuth is a free property fraud mitigation service provided by the Recorder of Deeds office. Montgomery County property owners can register using their Parcel ID, which is the unique identifier for their property, and will receive e-mail alerts if a document is recorded at our office against the information included in their profile.
“Don’t be swayed by companies advertising to track your property for an exorbitant fee,” said Sorg. “You can do it yourself, through my office, absolutely for free.”
Montco Roots: Family and Property History Research through Deeds
During this program, Recorder Sorg will overview the types of documents that are recorded with the Recorder of Deeds office 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 Historical documents contain a wealth of information about family relationships and property history.
