Archive America 2017
by William Pattison | 2017/02/02

  Russel Neiss and Charlie Schwartz employed the Twitter platform to list the German passenger vessel manifest of the MS St. Louis . Carrying Jewish refugees, America refused entry causing a return to home port. @Stl_Manifest scrolls by passengers killed, in the form: "Fran Schmidt. The US turned me away at the border in 1939. I was murdered at The Netherlands.” Tweets add photographs of passengers too.

  This is a truly nouvelle and innovative way to make archival content relevant by democratizing access through public-private partnerships.  Social media sites like Instagram and Pintrest

Michigan Abolished Dower
by Robert Franco | 2017/02/01

Michigan's dower statute has been on the books for more than 170 years.  Only a handful of states recognize dower rights, and the number is shrinking.  Interestingly, in Michigan the legislature finally took the steps to get rid of it because it would have needed to be revised in light of Obergefell v. Hodges (legalizing gay marriages).

A New Curative Statute is Working its Way Through the Ohio Legislature
by Robert Franco | 2016/08/28

Ohio currently has a statute that cures certain defects in recorded instruments when they have been of record for more than 21 years.  Defects that can be cured include improper witnessing and missing or defective acknowledgements.  Senate Bill 257, if it passes, will broaden the application of the statute and shorten the time it takes for the cure to take effect.

"India" is not the problem
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/04/16

In the past few weeks I have been highlighting the fact that the industry is rapidly changing. Some of this change is inevitable and worthwhile, but some changes may prove to undermine the health of the industry as a whole.

One of the most common changes described as being bad for the industry is usually referenced by one word: "India." For some, this has become a shorthand term for off-shoring, and it is usually used as a negative or pejorative term. However, we need to be clear that "India" isn't the problem.

Independent Abstractors: Well Trained Specialists (Part Three)
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/04/09

 

There are certainly opportunities to succeed in this market. If independent service providers are going to take advantage of them, they must differentiate themselves from the rest of the market, and nothing sets the independent apart from the crowd better than the fact that they know abstracting, in the context of their local areas, better than anyone.

However, while this is a distinct advantage, there are two critical obstacles to getting that message out to clients and convincing them to use your services. Once the obstacles are understood, the opportunities and challenges become clearer.

Independent Abstractors: Making Peace With Technology (Part Two)
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/03/26

If independent abstractors are going to take the necessary steps to be seen as valued specialists, as opposed to mindless searchers, it isn't enough to rail against the over-inflated promises of technology. There needs to be a clear understanding of what technology can do. Perfection in the document chain is not a promise that technology will soon deliver, but there are some direct advantages that technology can provide.

Independent Abstractors: Dying Breed or Valued Specialists? (Part One)
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/03/19

The prevailing view among some industry leaders seems to be that the independent abstractor is a dying breed, the last vestige of an ancient way of doing business. This is attributed to the rapidly expanding digitization of title documents and new technology solutions that are being designed to quickly and efficiently obtain and deliver those documents to their clients. This is one example where technology has made promises well beyond what it can actually provide.
