Introduction To Land Office Records in Ohio
Saturday, July 27, 2013, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ohio Historical Center Archives/Library
What does it mean to have an ancestor who bought land from the United States government or received a Revolutionary War bounty? When delving into land research, what are the differences between a bounty, a direct sale, a grant, and a homestead? This workshop points out where lands were available in Ohio to Revolutionary War veterans, describes how to determine who claimed Revolutionary bounty lands, and teaches how to locate individual claims. Emphasis is on the description of land survey, entry, and payment records at the Ohio Historical Society and how to best use them.
