        The Registry of Deeds is a county office operated under the supervision of the Register of Deeds who is an elected county official.  By virtue of this office, the Register of Deeds is also an Assistant Recorder of the Massachusetts Land Court.  All transactions recorded in the land court section of the Registry deal with registered land, the title to which is insured by the Commonwealth.  All records at the Registry are available in printed form dating back to the 1600’s.

        The Dukes County Registry of Deeds is located in the County Courthouse in Edgartown.  At the Registry one may trace the ownership of property located in the towns of Aquinnah (formerly Gay Head), Chilmark, Edgartown, Gosnold, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury and West Tisbury.

        The Registry is also a revenue producing agency.  Statutory fees are collected for recordings, excise tax stamps, copies and other Registry services. All receipts are paid periodically into the County and State treasuries thereby helping to reduce the cost of government at all levels.
