Notary Records, 1881-1962

Identifier: Series-113

Scope and Contents

Notaries Public were appointed in each county by the Governor (and later by the Secretary of State) for a term of four years. Their notarial commission was recorded in the office of the County Clerk and Recorder. Notaries witnessed the signing of important documents and administered oaths. Offical acts were recorded in the Notary's Record Book, which listed the details of each notarization performed. Entries include date, names of person granting and to whom granted, nature of instrument, fees collected, and description of property.

Collection contains record books and/or commission certificates of Edward L. Berthoud, William W. Foudey (Buffalo Creek), John W. Green, Jr., Frank B. Hurnian, Alexander Jameson (Golden) and John W. Shepardson.

Note: Notarial record of E.L. Berthoud was transcribed, indexed, and published by the Foothills Genealogical Society and is available in the archives' reference library.
