And I suggest that it would make no difference at all if the index was on 
line and linked directly to the image of the deed. Which is what we are 
talking about here. You don't have to rush to the court house and look in a 
specific deed book. You merely click the mouse one tiny time and you can 
decide for yourself whether the index information is accurate.

Which is why I said I am hardly ever astonished by what some folks do. Even 
the ones who hang out here and try to become more professional.
