Siuslaw Genealogy Society member Kevin Mittge will provide an introduction to land records presentation at the March 19 SGS meeting. He’ll show how land records can be a valuable resource in our genealogy research. According to Kevin, “land records can help locate our ancestors, may prove relationships, indicate literacy, provide approximate marriage and death dates, and can help differentiate between two people with the same name. Grants, patents, homesteads, donation land claims, warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, and mortgages, are just some of the records the family historian can use to solve many research problems.” Kevin will also demonstrate how to use Google Earth and other online resources.
It’s sure to be an interesting and educational evening for anyone doing family research!
