Get your documents recorded in any county in the State of Alaska as well as any county in the United States!
In time sensitive situations our nationwide network of recording agents hand deliver your document directly to the clerk to ensure your documents are recorded without delay. You go straight to the front of the line, past piles of documents mailed to the clerk's office, which can take weeks to get recorded. Once your document is recorded, we provide a copy of the recorded document or a county receipt with recording information – whichever fits your needs.
Occasionally, some counties become badly backlogged. This could delay the recording of your document even when we hand deliver it. If this happens, we monitor your document closely and keep you informed of the progress until we confirm it has been recorded.
Fast Electronic Document Recording
We can now electronically record your real estate documents in many counties around the US! Send us your documents and we'll record them electronically – saving you time & shipping costs.
When the recording is complete, you receive a confirmation of recording and a copy of the recorded document. This is much faster and more cost efficient than standard recording and we recommend it whenever possible! Find out more about electronic document recording.

Alaska - Economics
Alaska leads the nation in the value of its commercial fishing catch—chiefly salmon, crab, shrimp, halibut, herring, and cod. Anchorage and Dutch Harbor are major fishing ports, and the freezing and canning of fish dominates the food-processing industry, the state’s largest manufacturing enterprise. Lumbering and related industries are of great importance, although disputes over logging in the state’s great national forests are ongoing. Mining, principally of petroleum and natural gas, is the state’s most valuable industry. Gold, which led to settlement at the end of the 19th cent., is no longer mined in quantity. Fur-trapping, Alaska’s oldest industry, endures; pelts are obtained from a great variety of animals. The Pribilof Islands are especially noted as a source of sealskins (the seals there are owned by the U.S. government, and their use is carefully regulated).
In 1968 vast reserves of oil and natural gas were discovered on the Alaska North Slope near Prudhoe Bay. The petroleum reservoir was determined to be twice the size of any other field in North America. The 800-mi (1,287-km) Trans-Alaska pipeline from the North Slope to the ice-free port of Valdez opened in 1977, after bitter opposition from environmentalists, and oil began to dominate the state economy. The Alaska Permanent Fund, created in 1977, receives 25% of Alaska’s oil royalty income. The fund is designed to provide the state with income after the oil reserves are depleted and has paid dividends to all residents.
