  • Federal Land Patents offer researchers a source of information on the initial transfer of land titles from the Federal government to individuals. In addition to verifying title transfer, this information will allow the researcher to associate an individual (Patentee, Assignee, Warrantee, Widow, or Heir) with a specific location (Legal Land Description) and time (Issue Date). We have a variety of Land Patents on our site, including Cash Entry, Homestead and Military Warrant patents.” Land Patents are found in all states except Hawaii.

 

  • Survey plats & Field Notes – survey plats are part of the official record of a cadastral survey and field notes are the narrative record of the cadastral survey.

    This information consists of images of all available survey plats for the entire state and includes pages of field notes. The plats are organized by county and then by township and range. Additionally, we have posted all of the available images for the Mineral and Homestead Entry surveys.

    The individual county maps with links to the plats may be viewed by clicking the different counties on the map or by clicking the corresponding text links at the bottom of the page.

    If field notes are available for a plat, there will be a label/link on the plat. Click on the label/link to view the field notes. Some of the field note files are quite large and may result in long load times depending on the speed of your internet connection.
