Merrimack County Registry of Deeds, N.H., Completes Computerized Land Records Upgrade

September 4, 2002

HOUSTON, /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Merrimack County Registry of Deeds, Concord, N.H., has updated and upgraded its computerized land records by installing the LANDSCAN® document management and recordation system. Nearly one million index records and 950,000 images were converted during the upgrade.

The system, provided by Landata Technologies Inc. (Landata)provides support for cashiering, indexing and imaging of real property records, as well as for public access, viewing and printing of those records from computer terminals located in the Registry office.

"The process has been invaluable, because we did a complete update on our records going back to 1920," said Merrimack County Register Kathi L. Guay, CPO. "We can now ensure greater accuracy of our property information. We are also saving money for the taxpayers of Merrimack County, not just on the monthly lease payment for the system, but also in being able to handle half again as much work with our current personnel."

Merrimack County is the third largest county in New Hampshire. Concord is the county seat, as well as the state capital.

The new Web address for the Merrimack County Registry of Deeds is http://www.merrimackcounty.nh.us.landata.com /.
