Title: Land and Property Research in the United States
"...an indispensable tool!" Land records are among the oldest and best-preserved records in the U.S. Researchers often overlook the importance of land records as a source for genealogical information. But significant and often hidden clues can be found in land and property records. Written evidence of people's entitlement to land and property goes back in time further and apply to more people than any other genealogical record in the United States. However, they can often be difficult to fully understand and use.
Enter Land & Property Research in the United States, by author Wade Hone. This virtual encyclopedia of American genealogy will guide you through the "how to use" and "where to find" of land & property records. Additionally, LPR will instruct you on the nature of land and property records. Of course, all this information would be of little use without an understanding of how to use it in genealogical research. Therefore, the significance of genealogical information is tied into each record group and chapter.
Land & Property Research in the United States is the most comprehensive and useful review of land and property research to date. Nowhere else will a researcher find the information on these important records so easily accessible. A "must have" for genealogists, title companies, law libraries, county government offices, and federal government employees.
