Happy Saint Patrick's Day from CHR!

Saint Patrick was kidnapped from Britain when he was 16 and taken to Ireland, where he was enslaved and worked as a shepherd. He escaped and returned to Britain after six years. After becoming a priest, he was led back to Ireland by a dream and returned, sharing the love and hope of G-d in the land of his former captivity.

As we all deal with health protocols and navigate this situation together, may we find "gold" in the things we are grateful for, focus on solutions and keep pushing through! There is always a bigger plan.

We're here to assist in any way we can. Stay safe!

Dear Clients and Colleagues,

In the face of difficulties arising from the current outbreak of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), we want to assure you that we remain deeply committed to our β€œIt’s Our Search Too” philosophy. More than just a motto, It’s Our Search Too means that will do whatever we can to continue providing you with the best service possible.

Our Work Place
The best way to ensure that there are no interruptions in service is to take care of the people who make up the County House Research team. In keeping with recent health advisories, those CHR team members who are able to work from home are now doing so. We are also monitoring the situation in the courthouses to determine any health and safety considerations affecting County House Research employees. If we determine that there is a threat to the health and safety of our team members, we will communicate that information to you at the earliest possible time.

Courthouse Closures
We anticipate that over the course of the next few weeks, courthouses throughout the country will close sporadically in order to assess conditions and clean facilities. We will keep you updated on any courthouse closures or service interruptions as we learn about them. Our researchers are in continuous contact with the various courthouses we serve. If service is not available, we will communicate that information to you as soon as possible.

Current Closures
Currently, all Massachusetts courthouses will be closed on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Massachusetts courthouses are rescheduled to open on Wednesday, March 18. Will keep you apprised of conditions as information becomes available.

Information Resources
As those in our industry know only too well, good information is the best tool for making good decisions. Here are some resources to help you navigate the coming weeks.
