Greece Notarial RecordsEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

In Greece, all legal transactions are recorded by notary offices (Symvolaiografeion).

Notaries kept records such as dowry contracts (proikoa), wills (diathiki), and land transfer contracts.

Some notary offices have files of contracts dating as early as 1400. These records are kept in private notary offices. Access depends on the current notary. A fee will be charged for copies of contracts.

Land records may also be found in a government land ownership office (Ypothikofylakeion). These offices can be accessed only by attorneys. The only notary records that are available at the Family History Library are for the town of Argos, Argolidos, Greece from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
