|Per American Association of Notaries: You must keep your journal(s) during the entire period for which you are a notary public in the state of Texas. Upon resignation or removal from office, the journal must be turned over to the County Clerk's office in which the Notary resides.|
That's what it says now. But TX has had changes so it's 'possible' that back in 2010, a journal wasn't required. Good luck.
