As part of an ongoing commitment to providing outreach to different Norfolk County Registry of Deeds stakeholders, Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell recently hosted a computer seminar for members of the Bar Association of Norfolk County.
At the seminar, attendees received a tutorial on navigating the Registry’s online land records. Instruction was provided on how to access land documents such as deeds, mortgages, Homesteads and mortgage discharges. The Norfolk County Registry of Deeds computer system has more than 8.5 million land document images available for viewing, dating back to 1793.
“Those attending the Nov. 14 seminar learned how easy it is to look up land related documents,” said O’Donnell. “With this knowledge, real estate and conveyancing attorneys can do this research from the convenience of their law offices resulting in better service to their clients.
“I want to thank Pamela Salpoglou, president of the Bar Association of Norfolk County who was the driving force behind setting up the seminar. I also want to thank the Bar Association members who took time from their busy schedules to attend the seminar. The Registry values its relationships with the real estate and legal communities. Sharing information, we are all able to better serve the general public and clients and make all our jobs easier.”
