Document the details of the notarial acts you perform with this Notary Public Record Book. It includes room for 256 entries and complete “how to” instructions. Notary Public Underwriters highly recommends all notaries maintain a record book.
The Notary Public Record Book is an important tool that contains details of the notarial acts you perform and may help protect you in the event of a lawsuit. Many states require notaries to record each notarial act they perform in a bound record book. Your notary record book contains private and possibly sensitive information about the people for whom you performed a notarial act. You must take precaution to guard your notary record book to protect the privacy of its contents. Your Notary Public Record Book belongs to you, and must remain under your control at all times. Your employer has no rights to your notary record book, even if the employer paid for it. Never share your notary public record book with another notary.

- Record of the notarial act performed
- Title and date of the document
- Method of identifying the signer
