Shelby County, Indiana
Original Land Owners Index
Deeds are handled by the Recorder's Office. Index books are available for all years, and the individual deeds have been microfilmed. You can reach them at 317-392-6370; however, they are not staffed to do look-ups. If you mail your request and a check (34 W Polk St, Shelbyville IN 46176), I'm sure they will pass it along to me.
