RE:   Copy Button for the Register of Wills/Recorder of Deeds
On April 1, 2016, our office will no longer have the software to read out-dated copy buttons.  If you have a copy button that you have not used for a while, please bring it in as soon as possible so that we may make sure it is one that is compatible with our current button system. 
Otherwise, any remaining balance you have on an out-dated button will be lost and forfeited because we will not be able to read and/or transfer funds for you to our current button system. 
Please do not hesitate to contact this office if you have any questions.Thank you.
