United State Land Records will be presented by Marilyn Markham. Learn how land ownership was one of the main attractions why your ancestors came over from the “old country.” While some records can be hard to locate, deeds tend to survive. If a courthouse burned, current landowners would often re-record their deeds providing a clue about family members which cannot be found anywhere else. Learn where to find Land Records, how to use them and what information can be found in these valuable historical records.
This program is hosted by FamilySearch which allows our participants to view the class on the Gainesville Library Branch's large screen TV. This program is hosted by FamilySearch. Program is free and open to the public.
