Land Records and your Genealogical Search

11 Oct

Land records are valuable for genealogical research. They provide evidence of places where your ancestor lived and for how long, when he or she moved into or out of a locality.
This has occurred in my own family search. I learned that my Great-great grandfather (on paternal side) purchased land in Wisconsin, the year, and the county/state of residence he lived all in the grantee deed. This helped me to trace his migration pattern backward and determine some years of where he lived or stayed that I was not sure about.
