what we do:

The Recording Department is part of the Clerk & Recorder office and is, by statute, the official records repository for Flathead County. It is the responsibility of this office to manage County records at a maximum level of efficiency for the benefit of public accessibility. Private individuals, various companies, government agencies, and lending institutions utilize the recording department as a research center. Staff members may assist with records research, receipting of recorded documents and data entry.  Document indexes are the primary directory of all permanent records on file in the Recording Department.  Document recordings are processed utilizing multiple media formats, including paper and digital e-recordings. 
The Recording Department also issues vital statistics records (birth & death certificates) for Flathead County. Our vital statistic records serve as backup files for the Montana State Department of Health and Human Services in Helena. Additionally, the recording office, in conjunction with the plat room, records land transfer documents, certificates of survey and subdivision plats to enforce statutory requirements and subdivision regulations.
