Today, October 13, 2021, the Orange County Clerk-Recorder Department achieved a milestone in electronic recording history by reaching 10 million electronically recorded documents. This accomplishment keeps the department as the nationwide industry leader and is a testament to the department’s commitment to bringing the residents of Orange County fast and efficient services.

Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen attributes much of the success to the vision of the late Gary Granville who was the Clerk-Recorder from 1994 to 2002. Under his leadership, Clerk-Recorder Nguyen was part of the team that implemented the first electronic recording system in the nation in 1997. While recording real property documents electronically is a common service today, Orange County changed the industry by implementing the first electronic recording delivery system in the nation.
