2 Probably Land and property records go back further in time than any other type of record. Often before marriage records were preserved by government. They can place your ancestor in a particular place at a particular time leading you to other records. They also show family movements

3 Why Are Land Records Valuable? 1. Apply to more people than any other record. 2. Started in early 1600 in US 3. Less loss of records 4. Indexes provide lists of early residents 5. Show relationships 6. Show population movements

4 Information you will find Location of land Date of application Name of grantor Name of grantee Legal description Price First name of wife Dower release

5 You will not find: Date of birth Birth place Marriage dates Marriage places You may find : Possibly married names of daughters and husbands Previous residence or where seller is moving Names of deceased spouses or parents Names of grandchildren and heirs Indication of military service Names of neighbors Illegitimacies

6 Use of Quit Claim Deeds To Determine Relationships When a Quit Claim Deed is found that lists two men with the same surname (e.g. John Brown and Frank Brown), and it is clear that Frank is a generation younger than John, it can be assumed that they are father and son. As John s son, Frank would have had a vested interest in his land.

7 Older records are more likely to contain genealogical information. You will need help with legal terms and old handwriting.

18 Deeds and Grants The GLO distributed over 1,031,000,000 acres of public domain lands There are several types of land records Donation Lands Homestead Grants Grants to States Grants to Railroads Private land Claims Military

19 Donation Lands were sold inexpensively to encourage settlement and expansion of the west at about $1.25 an acre. Homestead Grants Homesteaders could receive title to the land after living on and improving the land for five years. About 60% never completed the requirements to receive a patent. However, their applications have been preserved in their case files. These may contain helpful information. Military Bounty Lands given in exchange for service rendered in the military

20 Clues Your Ancestor May Have Had A Land Grant 1. He sold land he never bought 2. He is listed as owning land on the census record but no record is found 3. Was among first settlers in area 4. Family tradition says he homesteaded 5. He lived on land that was part of a military tract 6. He had a federal land warrant

21 Bounty Land Warrants for Veterans of the American Revolution Major General acres Brigadier acres Colonel..500 acres Lieutenant Colonel..450 acres Major acres Captain..300 acres Lieutenant acres Ensign acres Non-Commissioned acres Soldier 100 acres Surgeon.400 acres Surgeon s Mate 300 acres
