The proof of publication typically includes a newspaper clipping of the published notice, a note of the newspaper where the notice appeared, the cost of publication, and a notarized, signed statement from the newspapers publisher. In the first volume all the information is handwritten, while the second volume contains pre-printed forms for filling in information.
