MoSGA President Bill Eddleman. Ph.D. will discuss deed records as a source that beginning and intermediate-level researchers sometimes access sparingly, if at all. Often this is because the records require a deeper level of understanding in order to locate and use them effectively. An estimated 80% of men owned land during the 19th century, and deeds disposing of this land often document relationships.
