Warrants & Patents & Deeds, Oh My!

May 5 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

There will be no EGS meeting on this date, May 5. Due to the closing of the Gail Borden Public Library, this program will either be cancelled or rescheduled.

Please see the Gail Borden website for more information.

Daniel Hubbard will present “Warrants & Patents & Deeds, Oh My! You may think that land records are the “scariest”records in genealogy, but it doesn’t take much courage to find much more in them than that your ancestor owned some land. Dan will look at some of the treasures you can find in land records, the process of acquiring and selling land and the documents produced. He will also look at the ways that your ancestors’ land was specified- metes and bounds system and the rectangular survey system.

Daniel Hubbard is a full-time professional researcher. Inspired by family stories, he began to seriously conduct family history research at about eleven years of age. Daniel combines his skills in technology, genealogy, and complex research, the organizing of large amounts of information, writing, editing and book design to assist clients with their family history projects.     Meeting Rm:  Meadows A/B
