No other records in America carry the potential for genealogical proof as property records. These records can yield missing surnames, genealogical relationships and individual identity in their evidence. This book begins with a breakdown of the functions of each American jurisdiction: American Federal System with state-land-states (they kept original ownership of their lands and granted title themselves) and public domain states (title derived from the federal government); local governments: county, township, district, city, village, town, political ward, and precinct; and government by committee. Also included:
* how to locate property records
* creation and custody of property records
* step-by-step directions on platting a property description
* extracting data from title conveyances
* indexes to property records
* county courthouse records available
* public land records - old and new
* private land claims - what they are and how to search these 11 different records. Also provided is information on land measurements, a map of land acquisition, and a section on tax records.
