Register O’Donnell Hosts Computer Seminar

As part of an ongoing effort to promote land record research education and outreach to Norfolk County residents, Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell recently hosted a free informational computer seminar on land document research.


 


At the seminar, attendees were provided with a tutorial on how to navigate the Registry’s online research page which is accessible via www.norfolkdeeds.org. Register O’Donnell and staff led a series of interactive teaching exercises on accessing land documents such as deeds, mortgages, Homesteads and mortgage discharges via the Registry’s online computer system. The Norfolk County Registry of Deeds state-of-the-art computer system houses more than 8 million land documents dating back to its beginnings in 1793.


 


Register O’Donnell noted, “We are very proud that our robust computer system allows for documents to be online immediately after recording. Additionally, all documents are scanned and available for viewing within 24 business hours of recording.”


 


For those attending the seminar, computer skills were not required. Each attendee received free reference materials, which they took home with them. Register O’Donnell and his team were on hand to assist attendees and answer questions.


 


“Attendees at the October 23rd seminar learned how easy it is to look up land related documents. The skills learned at the seminar will allow attendees to do land document research from the comfort and convenience of their home or work computer,” noted the Register.


 


Concluding his remarks, Register O’Donnell stated, “In this day and age, it is important that citizens know their government is working for them. These computer seminars are a great way for myself and my staff to engage the public in the important work done each and every day here at the Registry of Deeds. We are very appreciative of all who took time out from their busy schedules to attend the computer seminar. The feedback we have received indicates the seminars are very helpful for members of the general public and real estate professionals alike.”
