One of two systems counties use to track real property ownership; the other is Torrens. Abstract records are kept by the county recorder’s office and contain the detailed history of a property. Contact the county recorder’s office in the county where the property is located to find out if it is abstract or Torrens (in Minnesota, this is the same as the county recorder).
