FLINT, Mich. — Genesee County is automating management of its register of deeds and vital-records operations.

The new system applies imaging and document management technology from Bull Information Systems of France. It contains the deeds, mortgages, and tax lien records managed by the register of deeds, as well as the birth, marriage, and death records administered by the county clerk.

The system will eventually be made available on the Internet to the county’s 430,000 residents, officials said.

“We manage about 600 deeds, mortgages, and tax liens each day,” Melvin McCree, the county’s register of deeds, said in a press statement. “Our clients include the general public, attorneys, banks, mortgage companies and title companies. This system will help them have easier access to the records they need.”

The mortgage industry has been calling for faster public-records processing.
