The Geauga County Good Deeds Program
Your Geauga County Recorder, Sharon C. Gingerich, Geauga County Probate/Juvenile Judge, Tim Grendell, and several area attorneys are offering a deed review service to the residents of Geauga County called The Good Deeds Program. Your Geauga County Clerk of Courts, Denise Kaminski, will speak to residents regarding auto and mobile home titles. The Geauga County Department on Aging will offer legal assistance to residents 60 years of age and over through their legal assistance plan.
Please see the brochure below for an explanation of this Program. We hope that whether or not you participate in this program, you will begin to think about your deeds, wills, and estate planning and contact your own attorney.
To make an appointment with the Department on Aging, call (440) 279-2130.

2018 UPCOMING GOOD DEEDS PROGRAM
Geauga County Recorder, Sharon C. Gingerich; Probate/Juvenile Court Judge, Tim Grendell; and local attorneys offer a deed review program called The Good Deeds Program to help Geauga County residents better understand probate issues regarding property transfers. Clerk of Courts, Denise Kaminski, will also be present to discuss titles for cars and mobile homes.
The Program is a volunteer deed review process for Geauga County homeowners. It is a county-wide effort to help Geauga residents (1) identify whether the form of their present deed will require transfer through the Probate Court upon death; and (2) to consider less expensive and less time-consuming alternatives to a probate transfer.
Our next Good Deeds Programs are tentatively scheduled for March 2018. Please check back to this web page and the Facebook page for details as they become available.
When we host the programs, the Recorder’s Office usually opens at 6:00 p.m. to allow residents to obtain copies of their deeds. The Annex is NOT open prior to 6:00 p.m. on the days we host the Program. The Recorder's Office will close shortly before the scheduled presentation time.
The presentations normally begin 7:00 p.m. in Courtroom A of the Geauga County Probate/Juvenile Court, on the 2nd floor of the Courthouse Annex. After the presentation, attorneys will be available to privately discuss your estate matters. This schedule is not set in stone, so check back closer to March for specifics.
Please note: if County Offices are closed due to weather issues, the Program will be cancelled. If the weather is threatening, please call the Court or the Recorder prior to 4:00 p.m. to confirm. See contact information below.
Light refreshments will be served.
We are taking a Youth Good Deeds Program to local high school seniors. We hope to make this presentation to schools on a yearly basis.

It is our pleasure to offer this service to the Residents of Geauga County.
