My land records webinar on the online Maryland land records came off with only one hitch–the dog barked for about a minute during it.
I’m not certain when I’ll have time to record it again and those who attended live wanted to get their recording of it, so I’ve uploaded it. We’re selling it at a discounted rate of $8 (which we’re calling the Riley discount because that’s the dog’s name).
MDLANDREC has Maryland Colonial land patents and county record copies of local land records on it’s site. The land patents are searchable based upon name of property and the name of the patentee. Older land records are not indexed digitally, but copies of the county’s grantor and grantee indexes are online as well.
Copies of the record images can be downloaded as PDF files. There is no charge to use the image site. In some cases, entire grantee/grantor indexes can be downloaded. Pages from various record books can be downloaded individually. Images from the loose patents can be downloaded as well. This is a wonderful website for those with Maryland ancestor who were property owners.
