Land Record Research

William Dollarhide recently wrote an article about land records for Lelend Meitzler’s Genealogy Blog. He points out that property records are some of the most complete records sets we have about our ancestors. Even when courthouses and their records were burned, property records were typically quickly reconstituted, because without them, defending ownership as well as buying and selling land becomes difficult.
