Lee County Clerk of Court hosts free workshop on how to access public records, documents
Learn how to search and view Lee County’s civil and criminal court documents and public records at a free two-hour workshop Sept. 20 at the Cape Coral Public Library.
The seminar, which starts at 1:30 p.m., will provide information on how to get free copies of mortgages, deeds, marriage licenses and other official county records from the newly redesigned website. Information on how to participate in foreclosure and tax deed auctions will also be presented.
