I may be too late in getting this to you. The best thing to do is to contact a Realtor or Title Company. You can also doe the research at the county recorders office. Many times a Realtor can send these to you directly. I went through the same thing on my home recently and ended up getting a good refund.
Hopefully this helps you. Let us know if you have any other questions.
