Plowing Through Land Records to Find Your Ancestor

Saturday, March 16, 2024

Meet & Greet: 10:00 am
Program Begins at 10:30 am


    Did you know Americans were so “land-minded” well into the 19th century that over three-quarters of all males who lived to maturity, owned land? Because of this fact, land records exist from the beginning of the first permanent settlements in America – frequently one of the few identifying records from this early period. Ironically, more genealogical data may be obtained from land records the older that they are.

    Join us for a presentation focused on using land records combined with other sources to identify your ancestors!
