RT2060 - Digging for Ancestors: Bureau of Land Management

Session Description

The Bureau of Land Management website is a treasure trove of information about our ancestors who settled in the public land states. Learn about the initial transfer of land from the federal government to your ancestors in those states. Gain an understanding of the Rectangular Survey System used in the public land states. Discover the BLM website’s features. They include: searching for your ancestors’ documents, mapping the location of the property, viewing lists and maps of neighboring landowners. Find out how to order a land entry case file from the National Archives. Have you looked for your ancestors at the BLM website?
