Act of Mar. 24, 1949, P.L. 368, No. 30              Cl. 68
                                  AN ACT

     To validate certain acknowledgments and to regulate the effect

        The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
     hereby enacts as follows:

        Section 1.  In all cases where a president of a corporation
     who was in fact authorized to, and did, execute a written
     instrument by signing the name of the corporation by himself as
     president, but the acknowledgment certificate attached to such
     instrument fails to state that he was authorized to execute the
     instrument, and the language used in such certificate is not in
     the exact form prescribed by law for such acknowledgments and
     certificates, such acknowledgments are hereby validated. All
     such instruments in writing, so acknowledged and certified, may
     be offered in evidence without further proof. If such
     instrument, so acknowledged and certified, conveys, or relates
     to, or concerns any interest in, lands, it may be recorded in
     the recorder's office of the county or counties where such lands
     lie, and the record of same, made before or after the passage of
     this act, shall be constructive notice of all matters contained
     therein; and, such record, or exemplification of same duly
     certified, shall be legal evidence in all cases in which the
     original would be competent evidence.
        Section 2.  The provisions of this act shall become effective
     immediately upon final enactment.
