Krebs will explain how the Register of Deeds office maintains the county’s land record documents, including deeds, mortgages, easements and plats. The office also maintains and issues copies of birth, death, marriage, divorce and domestic partnership records. Krebs will explain the best way people can access these public records.

Before that, he was deputy register of deeds for three years and worked in the title insurance field as a title examiner, researching and reviewing real estate documents. Krebs also has worked as a campaign finance analyst at the Federal Election Commission in Washington, D.C., where he reviewed campaign finance reports from political action committees.
