Acting Notary

Acting Notary

Postby huntingross » Thu Jul 23, 2009 6:33 pm

A random thought occurred to me this morning, as I continue to have attempts frustrated by the system.

Can anyone see a reason why I couldn't offer an Notarial service to Freemen....????

Send your stuff to me...I do the witness stampy thing...and despatch and recieve etc....

It should complete the Administrative justice side of things....

Be kind, shoot it down gently.

No idea what 'qualifies' someone to be a 'notary' - I know they are not necc. members of the Law society.

In Winston Shrout's Kelowna seminar (ooooooo, I dunno, you might be able to find it somewhere like, oooooooo, I dunno - veoh.com)...

There's a guy who steps up to describe how the Notaries do their posting. Very interesting, and certainly able to be emulated.

I think the notary seal is quite important as it shows that proper due care was taken. It probably also proves the issuer is qualified in law (it does say that a notary is a fully qualified Lawyer on the notaries society website). I know it's possible to do a 'quickie' law course to specialise in a certain area of law - the name (of that form of role) escapes me - Whether that would include one on just notarial processes or not, I don't know.

Setting up a recording office, offering private/public document and 3rd party mail recording (eg, my recipient sends to you, so you can verify a response) might be an easier option. I believe it would be advantageous to be a postmaster in this set-up.

I asked the guy at the post office today if they can cancel stamps, and he said they can't. He told me Post Office was public only. Trying Royal Mail's helpline pissed me off with all the automated options I didn't need, but I'll try them again tomorrow. I would really like to be able to cancel stamps if I decide to go with the 3 witness way of verification.

Sounds good to me.

Until we start nominating people within the movement as Arbiters, Judges, Peace Officers and yes, Notaries, we don't have a structure.

Every society has a skeleton. Maybe it's time to start putting some meat on the bones?

I am willing to bet that if we all lived in the same community we would have all the skills necessary to live in a quiet, peaceful, safe, happy and productive way.

But we don't all live in the same village. And we may not all want to migrate to a common spot to create our society. There is no reason we cannot be together in spirit, is there?

Hi ADP

I have an FOI with Royal Mail at the moment, they are being singularly unhelpful with answers on the whole stamp thing.....so far they do not seem convinced that the status of postmaster is an option outside their remit....our american friends seem to disagree at least.

It struck me that the BoE describes how to do this :

any householder or substantial resident of the place may, in the presence of two witnesses, give a certificate, signed by them, attesting the dishonour of the bill, and the certificate shall in all respects operate as if it were a formal protest of the bill.


I would be looking to do that as a fine upstanding etc etc.

I shall look for the video you're mentioning

Can you post a thread with that correspondence? Have you FOI'd the post office on this issue too by any chance?

From a quick bit of googling, it looks like the 'Postmaster General' in the UK was an old ministerial position (declared defunct in 1969 superseded by Minster of Posts and Telecommunications). Sub-postmasters still exist I think, but you probably have to take on the full post office responsibility.

Could a similar effect to having a canceled stamp be achieved by having a witness sign a testimony to the effect of: "I hereby confirm that XXX document has been inserted into the envelope on xx/xx/xx by XXX and will confirm it's sealing by signing across the flap on the back".???

This is the thread so far

I currently stamp to cancel my stamps, this dude hasn't commented on this yet, he dodged the question, so I shall persevere with him for the time being.

What do you all mean by "cancel stamps"? Pardon my ignorance. :blush:
