The office of the County Clerk and the Register of Deeds were created for each organized county in Oklahoma. The offices were consolidated into the County Clerk’s office in 1974. The County Clerk serves the public by maintaining a public record of the ownership of land or real estate to create the history of title to a parcel of land or chain of title. When it is compiled in written form together with a statement of all liens and other recoded liabilities to which the title may be subject, it is referred to as an abstract of title.
