Why Property Documents are Important in Genealogical Research
After you view this video you will know that land records are among the best-preserved, largest, and most comprehensive genealogical record groups in the United States. Because land was inexpensive and readily available, 90% of adult free males were landowners before 1850. Many of the genealogical knots we encounter in early American history can be untangled by examining the land records.
This presentation was recorded live for the "U.S. Land and Tax Records" Expo. The individual Research Guide for this class is included with this video.
