The latest on real estate recordings and new technology from the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds in Lowell
The Middlesex North Registry of Deeds will be open its regular hours (8:30AM-4:30PM) on Friday, April 14.
The registry will be closed on Monday, April 17 in observance of Patriots Day.
A major goal at the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds is making every document at the registry available on the Internet. Five years ago this seemed like a wild (& crazy) dream. Today, through the efforts of many people, we are rapidly approaching this goal(we have digitized over 8 million records). Consistent with our goal, we have begun to digitized our Grantee indexes. There are ten consolidated indexes comprised of close to 100,000 pages. The digital images will be captured from archival microfilm. Last week we began the process and retrieved Grantee indexes from
1975-1966 & 1965-1960. The project is only about 20% complete but going very well. The CD images can be read easily. Retrieving archival film is always an adventure…some of this microfilm is sixty years old, so we are never sure what to expect. Fortunately, we have found very few problems with our film and the problems that have been discovered were easily corrected. I will keep you posted on the progress of this project.
