Recorded maps are indexed pursuant to California law. They can be searched by name, book/page, recording document number, date or date range, and type of map. They are not indexed by Assessor Parcel Number (APN) or address.
The index of maps is available online at Official Public Record Copies. Map images are not available online unless purchased. Once a map is purchased, the document will be available to view and download. Check the Recorder fee schedule for current costs.
Maps from 1854 to the present are available.
