Good basic introduction to initial property research in U.S. Describes various historical types of land transfers by state and Federal govenment. Includes British, French, and Spanish transfers prior to acqusition by U.S.

The work does not discuss later transfers after initial individual patent or ownership which would be of interest to someone following the history of a single piece of property. For this purpose, a book on using courthouse information would be additional help.

I am taking a genealogy class on land records. This book is great. I would recommend it for someone that is planning to do genealogy research or just property research in the U.S. It is a great resource and everybody does not like to search the internet.
