George County : County Officials


The definition of the word "chancery" is... equity. Chancery Clerk Cammie Byrd, and her staff, pride themselves on being equal and fair to everyone as they handle the County's daily business.

The Chancery Clerk Office is the official "record keeper" for the County. From adoptions to estates, our office records the present and protects the County's past.  In a typical week our staff handles all types of land and court records, such as: deeds (trust, wills, cancellations), estates, guardianships, conservatorships, divorces, DHS child support, adoptions, and Youth Court.

But you don't have to get dusty digging through the files in the vault. All County Land Records are online and this office is part of the MS Electronic Court System. 

Major Accomplishments:

  • All County land records are on line and can be viewed from any online device at .
  • Digitally scanned 31 years of Land Records and stored off site for safety and security.
  • The first Chancery Clerk's Office in the district to implement the Mississippi Electronic Court System (Court documents can be e-filed from attorney's office).
  • Generated $314,000.00 in revenue and transferred to County's General Fund.
  • Completely revamped filing system for both land and court records.
  • Implemented digital scanning and recording system for both land and court records.

The Chancery Clerk also records and maintains all of the Board of Supervisor’s Minutes and keeps an edition of almost every local newspaper dating back to 1910's.  The office handles drug, alcohol, and mental writs. Delinquent land taxes can be paid in this office.
