Whitfield County Clerk of Superior Court Babs Bailey held an open house to showcase the release of the new online Grantor/Grantee Index and Deed retrieval solution on Tuesday.

With funds from the American Rescue Plan Act, the Clerk of Superior Court’s Office took on the project. The project supports an infinite number of searches 24/7, improving public service by providing online access to search Whitfield County Grantor/Grantee Index books. All
corresponding records are available, which reduces the time associated with courthouse-based
research.

“It’s a step in the right direction,” said Ms. Bailey during the presentation. “When I was running for
office, I was told that there were problems in the deed room, and with Nakia’s help we were able
to work on getting all the problems corrected.”

Nakia McFarland is an account executive with Kofile, a business out of Dallas, Tx. that helps
permanently retain and digitally convert original documents. “We developed a plan of attack that
would best serve the citizens of Whitfield County, and those who do business with Whitfield
County,” said Ms. McFarland. “We’re still in the process of the entire project, but once we finish,
everything related to real estate will be digital.”
