Details

Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: United States. Bureau of Land Management.
OCLC Number: 866440662
Notes: These card files are incomplete in that they do not have all the legal descriptions within each state. In these cases, the researcher must then refer to the original tract book. The library has microfilms of the Tract Books. See entry in the Author/Title catalog: United States. Bureau of Land Management. Tract Books.
Each card contains the following information: Certificate number District Land Office Kind of entry (cash, credit, warrant, etc.) Name of patentee and county of origin Land description Number of acres Date of patent Volume and page where document can be located . Because these index cards are arranged by township and range within each state, the researcher will need to already have an approximate legal description in order to access these cards.
The card files also contain minor information on the following states: Arizonia, California, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Oregon, and Washington.
Description: 160 microfilm reels ; 16 mm
