All Those Dates

Keep in mind that some documents may have several dates, each of which serve a separate purpose. A land record may have a date of execution, when it was signed; a date of acknowledgement, where it was "acknowledged in front of an official;" and a date of recording, when it was filed for record.

Those dates may all be the same--or they may be stretched out over several years. It just depends. But there is a difference between the dates.
