Have you checked out James Tanner's series on Real Property?



James Tanner, Genealogy’s Star, did a great series on real property last year.

I’ve been looking for an opportunity to share his great series with you and I think now is the time.

For many of us, researching land is one of the few ways to document our ancestors.  Land was very valuable -- taxes were paid on it, houses built on it, improvements made on it, crops grown or livestock fed/housed on it, mills and blacksmith shops constructed on it, family members are buried on it, etc.

Here are the links to his series of articles … [I think in reverse order so I suggest you start at the bottom]



What was the most interesting “new-to-you” fact or resource that you learned about?
