As the table below demonstrates, since its founding the State Archives has responded to known advertisements and reports as to the location of alienated public records.
In all cases where a legal claim was formally asserted, the State’s statutory ownership and prior filing of the alienated documents were thoroughly researched and proven to the satisfaction of executive, legal and/or judicial authorities.
In such instances, the State Archives will suspend formal demand and legal process to recover such documents and will, upon receipt of them, acknowledge the same as a donation to the State Archives.
The State may also exercise its discretion in negotiating mutually beneficial terms for the return of such documents and/or the formal acknowledgement of their legal ownership by the State.
