Would it be possible for someone to check the permissions for these records?
I submitted a post previously about how disorganized this catalog was, although someone was looped me on a some maintenance that is being done which is preventing a clean up from happening. Now I'm just interested in possibly getting someone to check if these records are actually contractually restricted, which I doubt they are.
The catalog for the fifth notary has quite a few volumes with varying permissions which don't seem to be applied logically or for any particular reason. As can be seen in the snippet below, various volumes are completely unrestricted:
But if you scroll down some more, dispersed chronologically between unrestricted volumes there are various other volumes which are restricted.
For the restricted volumes, if I try to type in that DGS number in the URL, here is what I get:
I don't believe these volumes are intended to be restricted, especially considering that notarial records older than 30 years in Colombia can be requested by anyone. If you go to the last page of the catalog, you can even see that there are some volumes from the 1940s and 50s which are unrestricted. Additionally, the first four notaries have their books on FS too; in those catalogs, all the volumes from the 16th century to the 1930s are unrestricted.
Like I said, I really don't believe that the Archivo General would have requested that random volumes be restricted, this is information which can be requested by anyone.
