Event Details

Note: Michael will be presenting in person at the Tredyffin Library

Land records, including warrants, surveys, patents, deeds and mortgages, are essential genealogical, original records that most often provide participants’ information and answer questions of identity, relationship, event, or situation, as required by the Genealogical Proof Standard. These records often answer questions not answered by any other documents. And yet, land records are the least understood and pursued records in the field of family history. This presentation aims to provide both the real estate background and research specifics to lead you to the land records that may solve your brick walls.
