Township, Section Range: Looking at Land Records
Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Township 1, Range 43 West, Section 2. Does this make sense to you? Have you always been curious about the “secret language” of land records? Come learn about Federal land records and the difference between what you will discover at the National Archives versus the county or state archives. Topics include locating information about bounty land warrants, homestead files, land tract books, and other great land resources.

To make a reservation for this free workshop, please call 816-268-8000 or email

The National Archives at Kansas City is one of 15 facilities nationwide where the public has access to Federal archival records. It is home to historical records dating from the 1820s to the 1990s created or received by Federal agencies in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
