Program Description

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is full of treasures. There are documents dealing with Cash Sales of land across the U.S. There are military bounty land assignments and, after 1862, there are homestead deeds “to secure homesteads to actual settlers on the public domain.” The BLM also granted Timber Culture (1873), Homestead Entry-Stock Raising (1916) and Mineral Patents, Indian Allotments, and the list goes on and on. Let’s find your ancestors there.
