Register O'Donnell Hosts Computer Seminars for Municipal Employees

Norfolk County Registry of Deeds

Register O'Donnell Hosts Computer Seminars for Municipal Employees

Recognizing the increased usage of recorded land documents by local Norfolk County city and town governments, Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell recently hosted 2 free informational seminars on computer assisted land record research for municipal employees and community officials.

"These computer seminars were designed to help municipal employees and community officials familiarize themselves with our computer system and promote best practices when researching on-line land document information," noted Register O'Donnell.

Seminar attendees learned how to navigate the Registry's online research page and to access documents such as deeds, mortgages, mortgage discharges, Homesteads, decisions, orders and permits. All of the Registry's land documents are online and are accessible within 24 business hours of recording. The Norfolk County Registry of Deeds state-of-the-art computer system has more than 6 million land document images available for viewing, dating back to President George Washington's administration in 1793.

Register O'Donnell noted, "An important relationship I highly value is the one between the Registry of Deeds and the 28 municipalities in Norfolk County. Local agencies continuously depend upon us to provide them with easily accessible and accurate land document information including assessors, zoning boards of appeals and conservation commissions."

Additionally, there were several Registry staffers on hand, including Register O'Donnell, who were available to assist and answer questions. Each individual who attended the seminars received reference materials for their office use.

Register O'Donnell concluded, "I was delighted to see the tremendous response we had for these computer seminars. Furthermore, the interaction we had with our partners in local government left no doubt in my mind that these seminars were of great value and assistance."
