United States Land and Property

People could inherit land from other people, usually a close relative. If a person sold land that he did not buy, this may be a clue to a possible inheritance. If the person inheriting the land was a minor (generally under the age of 16), that person's guardian might also be named in the deed.

To find records of land inheritances, check probate records as well as land records for the names of relatives from whom the land may have been inherited.
