    Does this apply to veterans who received land through the Georgia land lottery system? If not, where can those land patents be found?
    Thank you,

      I would start a search for information regarding the Georgia land lottery system with the Georgia State Archives.

    My German immigrant ancestor received land in Louisiana from service in the Mexican War. I found in the parish records when he sold this land, but could not find when he purchased it. Years later, while doing a search by LAND DESCRIPTION in the BLM-GLO records his name came up. I have not found documentation of his service from military records yet.

    He could check entries of the Louisiana Purchase. I think they would be listed
    under National records until states were formed. The timeline is important.
    I believe that Germans started arriving in The 1820’s.
