== Why Should I Look at these Records? ==

The only records available in this collection at this time are Homestead Files from 1908 to 1910. If your ancestor homesteaded during this time, these records may give information such as children and adults living in the home, or place of birth. These records may be key to proving relationships and verifying an ancestor's residence place.

This collection was created to establish what lands had been sold to homesteaders and what lands were still available.  
  
 
Homesteads granted to settlers were 160 acres of land, and required a $10.00 fee for the Letters Patent. Males 18 years or older, or a male or female head of a family, could apply.
