Legal Search Matching Options: 
Contains: This is our broadest search option.  It will display the most search results.  No changes have been made to our Contains searches.
Contains Specific: This is our new search matching option. Contains Specific searches are less broad than Contains.  This search option does not display government lots, unless they are included in the search criteria. Contains Specific searches return any documents whose indexing data includes the search criteria entered.  No additional documents whose indexing data is blank or whose indexing data is similar will be displayed.
Exact: Exact searches are the least broad.  Search results will include only documents that have indexing information that match the search criteria EXACTLY.  For example, if a user searches for a plat name and leaves all other fields blank, the search results will ONLY include documents that are indexed to the plat name with no lots, blocks, buildings, units, and garages entered.
Any images before 4/1/1993 have NOT been verified after importing. Please check these documents carefully, any documents before 4/1/1993 may be inaccurate.  The official images are located in the Recorder’s office.
