The Walker County Clerk’s permanent library contains thousands of documents dating from the late 1800s to the present. We have worked tirelessly to preserve, protect and digitize documents for retention and public use. The Walker County Clerk records about 17,500 documents each year, including Official Public Records including Deeds and Plats, Marriage Licenses, Birth and Death Certificates and Assumed Names (DBA’s).

Walker County became the 15th County Clerk’s office in the State of Texas to deploy the next generation in Records Management software, Vanguard by Kofile Technologies.  This is a major step forward for Walker County and recognizes County Clerk Kari A. French as one of the State’s leading innovators in technology for County government.

We are diligently working to have records available online and in a user friendly format. Please bear with us as we continue to upload this information for images and indexes.

As of April 15, 2020, your Walker County Clerk’s office has implemented the ability to e-record. This is the process of submitting, receiving, and processing documents via the Internet, through a third-party vendor. Documents that have traditionally been delivered or mailed can now be processed electronically. Yes, you can still submit records via mail and in person.

 With e- recording, the submitter scans the document and uses a vendor application to upload the document and associated data. No special equipment is required, just a computer with high speed internet access and a scanner. Original documents never leave the submitter’s possession since they are scanned for submission. This also provides many advantages such as reducing costs of paper and postage and with the use of an escrow account, there is no need to write checks.  The Clerk's office becomes more transparent because the submitter knows exactly when the document is submitted and filed for record. If there is any problem with a document that prevents it from being filed, the Clerk's office will return the document to the submitter electronically with a specific reason given as to why the document could not be filed. To begin e -recording your documents, you will need to set up with a company who provides this service. Below is a list of the companies in this field.

 Documents received in the que prior to 3 p.m. will be processed the same business day. Documents received in the que after 3 p.m. will be processed the next working day.
