This Month:”Grow Your Story with Land Research” by Junel Davidson

Land records are a good source of genealogical and biographical information about our ancestors. Although often overlooked, land records can provide facts not included in other sources. Researchers may find evidence of relationships, dates and locations of events and proof of migration in addition to property information. Deeds and other documents may have clues that lead to new sources. Land research can help to fill in gaps in your story!

This online session will demonstrate how to access digitized land records available at FamilySearch and selected local recordkeeper sites in the United States.
