USING U.S. LAND RECORDS TO SOLVE FAMILY HISTORY PUZZLES
Land records often contain a wealth of genealogical, historical and legal information. Depending upon the type and time period, they may present new insights about ancestors, family history, title, and land use issues. In addition to providing location and date of settlement, records may attest to one's age, place of birth, citizenship, military service, literacy, and economic status, and may even include similar information about family members. RELIC staff genealogist, Darlene Hunter, will provide examples of various land records and how to locate them.
