Follow Friday – New US Federal Land Website

Becky Higgins posted on the Elgin Genealogical Society this week about the new US Federal Land Records website. This website is so much better than the original! I just looked up a Winkler ancestor in Montana and more details are given including mapping ability! This is definitely a website I will explore in detail.

Another land related blog post recently is on Midwestern Microhistory, Sixty Million Acres! The post discusses a book concerning American Veterans and public lands before the Civil War. Take a look.
