Can I Correct Extra Information I Added To A Journal Entry?

March 6, 2019 / Louisiana Notary Association


I’ve noticed that I recorded the number of driver license and the address of my clients in my log book by accident. I was only supposed to write the issuance and expiration dates. How can I correct this information in my log book? — E.E., Pennsylvania

You can strike out the inapplicable information and date the strikeout. Be aware, however, that statute requires you to record the address of each person for whom a notarial act is performed (57 Pa.C.S. 319[c]).

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
