Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 6
§ 133. Certification of notarial signatures. The county clerk of a
county in whose office any notary public has qualified or has filed his
autograph signature and a certificate of his official character, shall,
when so requested and upon payment of a fee of fifty cents affix to any
certificate of proof or acknowledgment or oath signed by such notary
anywhere in the state or New York, a certificate under his hand and
seal, stating that a commission or a certificate of his official
character with his autograph signature has been filed in his office, and
that he was at the time of taking such proof or acknowledgment or oath
duly authorized to take the same; that he is well acquainted with the
handwriting of such notary public or has compared the signature on the
certificate of proof or acknowledgment or oath with the autograph
signature deposited in his office by such notary public and believes
that the signature is genuine. An instrument with such certificate of
authentication of the county clerk affixed thereto shall be entitled to
be read in evidence or to be recorded in any of the counties of this
state in respect to which a certificate of a county clerk may be
necessary for either purpose.
