Do You Know Your Terms?

When making a trip to a courthouse, taking a genealogical reference manual isn’t necessary. However, work in land, court, and probate records may go more smoothly if you have a list of basic terms and their definitions with you. Confusing terms such as grantor/grantee, defendant/plaintiff, administrator/executor, quit claim/ warranty, etc. may cause you to waste research time.

    That is a very good suggestion. Just wondering if you might have a link to a good list of courthouse terms with definitions that could be either printed or downloaded.
