Special State-land States and Their Property Documents
After you view this video you will know how to answer these questions: Printed vs Original records-where do I start? Why Maps are essential evidence? Do land grants give the names of parents and other family members? How do I find family property on the ground? And why is it important to do so? Why state property records differ from state to state? What legalities directly impact the evidence in land and property documents: Can a minor own land? What if my ancestor signed a marriage contract? " American property records form a complete system of documentation for land ownership and revenue control and this system takes the force of law-transferring ownership and title with or without a court process.
