Land and property records are among the most numerous documentary evidence for genealogists. Deeds, tax lists, liens, and scores of related records can tell you when your ancestor bought and sold land, where the property was located, its sale value, and more. The transfer of property from a deceased person to another may provide the only evidence of the exact date of death. This seminar presents an introduction to land survey records using the state land state survey method and the township and range method. Many land and property documentation types are discussed.
