Recording Land Records

Since land records are very different in different countries and from Saxon times until the present, it is wise to first familiarize yourself with those relevant to your area by using a good text. The National Institute for Genealogical Studies has courses specific to your country of interest include the topic of Land Records and these have further references.

Land ownership was generally controlled by a small percentage of the population in the British Isles and Europe from feudal times. Thus arose the great attraction of emigration to the ‘new world’ where any industrious but relatively poor man could acquire his own piece of landed property, achieving an independence largely unknown in the old world.
