I put this in a new thread because I have nothing to say about powers of attorney. But I can think of a case where a notary could notarize a document that contains the notary's name. Once the Office of Professional Regulation makes the rules, I'll be allowed to make a paper certified copy of a document that I electronically notarized. Of course, that will include the electronic notarial certificate that has my name in it.
