Webinar Released: Sections, Townships, Base Lines, etc--Land Descriptions in Federal Land States

I just wrapped up my webinar on Sections, Townships, Base Lines, etc--Land Descriptions in Federal Land States.  The presentation focused on interpreting these descriptions, determining acreages and becoming familiar with the terminology.

This presentation is geared towards those who have had difficulty using land descriptions or who have avoided using land records because of the use of legal descriptions. The use of land records for genealogy and searching those records are not a part of this presentation. This presentation concentrates on how land is described.  We are offering this presentation (including media and handout) at an introductory rate of $4

Our searching land record webinar is described below:
