Especially handy for new residents.

Erie County Property Search Webpage

https://www2.erie.gov/ecrpts/index.php?q=real-property-parcel-search

Tips for searches: entries must be exact; you can search in only a particular town or all of Erie County; searches can be for a last name or for a street address; leaving the address number blank (street name only) brings up all properties on that street; records often go back only 20-to-30 years.
