Haywood Co Register of Deeds Launches the Thank A Vet Program
Haywood County recently launched the Thank A Veteran Program, which allows veterans the ability to get local discounts at participating local businesses. When Veterans record their DD-214 to the county’s Register of Deeds office, they will be issued a photo ID card. With this card, Veterans will be able to receive special discounts at a number of businesses and restaurants in the area. Haywood County is excited to have an opportunity to help out those who have served this country.
Read more below about Haywood County introducing this new program.
The Thank A Vet Program, which is recording system independent, is currently in production at multiple counties: Haywood County NC, Sullivan County TN, and New Hanover County NC. This program is also free to Veterans and to your business partners. The goals of this exclusive program are to encourage Veterans to register their DD-214, build partnerships with local businesses, and provide valuable benefits for your local Veterans. The Thank A Vet Program allows us to give back to these amazing men and women, who have sacrificed their lives for ours.

Crawford County Circuit Clerk Was In the News For Using BIS’ Fraud Alert Program–
Crawford County has done an amazing job spreading the word about this program to their community. As stated in the article below, the program will notify individuals when a document is filed with their name on it, even when it may have happened without their knowledge. BIS’ software reads each document that is scanned into the system using OCR software that pulls names that match those who have registered for notifications. If there is a hit on someone’s name, an e-mail is immediately generated to that person’s e-mail address. They may then call or go to the recorder’s office to look at what document was filed with their name on it.
Fraud Alert can also be used as Gap Control. The same way an individual will be able to enter their own name with an e-mail address, a company can enter a client’s name with their own e-mail address. For example, a company may have done a 30 year title search on a client on Wednesday and they have a closing on Friday. That company can sign up to receive notifications for anything filed with their client’s name on it to prevent them from having to repeat their search in a few days. As a result, saving companies lots of time and money. For any information regarding the Fraud Alert Program, please contact BIS at 866-514-5192 or e-mail email@example.com.

Washington County Tennessee Film Conversion - Searchers in Washington county will soon be able to view records dating back to the 1700's thanks to an ambitious microfilm conversion project, spearheaded by Register of Deeds Ginger Jilton. The project, which began last fall, consists of the digital converting of 75 rolls of the county's oldest microfilm which encompasses over 150 deed books. “The process of converting these images is very time consuming," said Taylor Burgess, Director of Micro-media for BIS.
Other than the convenience of being able to search these images in-house and online, other factors also led to Jilton's decision to pursue this project. "Having this film converted not only makes it more convenient for our searchers to access the images, but it will also provide the county with an additional offsite backup as well as eliminate the need for some costly maintenance contracts on some of our micro-film readers," said Jilton. The converted images will be available for searchers on The Registry system and will be viewable online via Titlesearcher.com.
