This session on 7 July 2022 will be an overview of United States Federal Land records, including:

  • Cash land sales
  • Military warrants
  • Homesteads
  • Preemption claims and more

Focus will be on how to determine if your relative had a complete or an incomplete federal land claim, how to locate the records, and what details are typically included in each file. This session is geared to those who have a basic understand of elementary land record terminology.

Our discussion will focus on the federal land acquisition process, the flow of paperwork, and how the process was completed. More people participated in federal land sales (either through outright purchase, military benefit, or other qualifying activities [ie. homesteading]) than people sometimes think.

Learn how to determine if your relative acquired federal land and how to access those records.

This session will be held live on 7 July 2022 at 3 PM central time. Live attendance is limited.
