The last 1131

Great news! We received the go ahead from the Secretary of State’s Office to scan our final 1131 records books. The project involves digitizing and naming (by book & page) more than 650,000 microfilm images. When completed all Recorded Land documents from Book 1(July 1855) to present will be available to the public electronically. Of course, this includes Internet accessibility as well. Digital Scanning Inc of Situate will do the work. Digital Scanning does 100% visual quality control. While this project is just beginning we are nearing completion on our Registered Land scanning project. Over the past ten months, we have scanned approximately 114,000 Registered Land instruments in-house. There are only about 25,000 left to be done. We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. We hope to finish this project by July 1. The registry’s 150-year celebration will take place this July. Our objective is to have all our recorded and registered land documents available on the Internet for the anniversary.
