March 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
10 a.m. – Noon
Federal lands have been surveyed according to a “rectangular” or “cadastral” survey system since 1785. If your ancestor patented public domain land, chances are his property was surveyed using this method, and probably was later sold or divided in much the same manner. This presentation includes hands-on practice reading and platting rectangular property descriptions
