Deeds conveying title to all registered estates shall be recorded in the same manner as deeds conveying title to unregistered lands are recorded. All previous conveyances of interests in registered lands by the last registered owner or said owner's representatives, heirs, or assigns and recorded in the deed records in the office of the clerk of the superior court in which the land is situated shall be valid transfers of said interests.
