Patching Families Together Through Land Records
When genealogists hit brick walls it’s not fun. Land records can provide the clues necessary to put stymied research on track again.
This presentation will provide examples of how relationships can be gleaned using deeds, bounty lands and land grants. In addition, platting will be discussed as a means of creating more leads to investigate.
