The deed will be located at the recorder's office, in the county where the property is located; any person can access it as it is a public record. Some counties have this information on line (generally the larger counties).

For a quit claim, the party that is granting an interest (and a quit claim transfers it without any warranties -it just transfers any ownership, without guaranteeing there is an actual interest in the property) executes the deed, and records it at the recorder's office.
