The latest on real estate recordings and new technology from the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds in Lowell
Big things happening “next week” at the registry…About three years ago we began scanning our Land Court Plans. Unfortunately, we were forced to stop this project when business exploded in 2003 (remember… the Good Ole days). Before stopping about 75% of these plans had been imaged. Yesterday, we decided to explore what was needed to resurrect this project. Our inquiries were well rewarded…in fact better than we hoped. Within two hours we loaded a newly developed, Registered Land Plan scanning program on the ACS system. We are thrilled to say the least. Next week the project restarts. Once the remaining 25% of the Registered Land plans have been scanned they will be available on our in-house database and the Internet.
On Monday (next week) the first fifty rolls of microfilm containing our Middlesex South records (1630-1855) will be sent out for digital conversion. There are 114 rolls in all. I estimate that the entire project should take no more than two months to complete (I Know, I’m an optimist). While the “South Record Book” films are being scanned we will be cropping the “South Grantor Indexes” in-house. Our paart of the project should take only about two weeks.
