Find genealogy information
The following are many ways a genealogist might find needed information on Doxpop:
- Search for a person. If you are trying to track a person down, Doxpop can help. When you click on the party details link next to the name of interest, you may find any or all of the following: full name, address, and date of birth.
- Search for divorces: Doxpop's database is searchable by case code (for a list of codes, see Doxpop Tidbits). DR is the code for domestic relations, a case type which includes divorces.
There are many recorded documents that would be of interest to a genealogist. The easiest way to find recorded documents connected to a certain person is to enter that person's name in the search box at the top right of the Recorded Documents page and press Search. You will find all recorded documents for that name. Click Details to see more about each document. The Document Type will be written in the upper right area of the details screen. The following are types that might be of interest to you:
- Some Cemetery Deeds, deeds for cemetery plots, are kept in a recorder's office. These deeds can show whether a person has a plot in a certain cemetery and even which plot that person has. If you would like to see all recorded deeds for a certain cemetery, put the name of the cemetery in the Party Information: Organization field.
- Warranty Deeds are regular deeds to property. These can help you locate the address of your relatives.
- Quit Claim Deeds are also of interest to a genealogist. A quit claim deed is filed when one person gives up their part of the claim on a property to another person, who also has a part of the claim. This is generally the case in a divorce, and would help determine who retains the property.
