Deeds: More Details than Land - Paula Stuart-Warren
Deeds. Mention that word to a family historian and probably the first thing that comes to mind is a land transaction. Original, microfilmed, indexed, abstracted, and digitized deeds cover other types of transactions and may provide details you may not find elsewhere. Names, relationships, parentage, ages, death, marriage, inheritance, family disputes, and former associates are found as land, enslaved human beings, equipment, mules, horses, and more are conveyed. When this session is over you will be itching to read deed books no matter where your ancestors lived in the U.S.
