Indexing information: Based on the order of names on the document the first party is the first party listed on the document. The second party is the second party listed on the document.

The statutes are silent on which index and book this document should be recorded in, but it is important for the integrity of records that clerk’s are consistent within their own county. In other words, if you previously recorded these documents in the general index to deeds and mortgages and put them in the deed book, make sure you consistently record them in the same index and book.
