A Notary Public is licensed “to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents” (National Notary Association)
If you need a document notarized, the Notary must witness you signing your document as part of verifying the document’s authenticity. A Notary may also administer an oath or affirmation, among other things.
Danby’s Town Clerk, Janice Adelman, is a Notary Public and is pleased to provide notary services. Please contact the Clerk’s office for more information, or book an appointment using the calendar options below. All signers and any required witness(es) must be present during the notarization.

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
