Abstract:

The state secretary (since 1961 through a unit currently called the Commissions Section) attests to all commissions of office signed by the governor, administering the oath of office to and/or recording the name of these and other public appointees. Register of civil commissions was created by the secretary to provide a chronological listing of nominations by county for civil officers including notaries public, justices of the peace, commissioners to qualify civil officers (from 1788-1824; for later see (M-Ar)183X), and clerks of court, with separate sections of justices and judges for the whole state.

Nineteenth century entries added, among others, pilots, inspectors, and trustees of state institutions, while twentieth century revert to listings primarily for notaries and justices of the peace. Information in entries includes dates of nomination and appointment, name, residence, office, date commission delivered, date qualified, and duration of appointment.
