Colonial Land: Six Types of Colonial Land
Colonial immigrants came to America searching for a means to support their family, church membership, and citizenship. They found land and in it their future for not only themselves but for future generations.
This lecture explores the ways our Colonial Ancestors acquired land and the documents they created in the process. Specifically, we will discuss Company Grant Land, quit rents, military bounty land, deeded land, headrights, and indenture. With a search plan and the right tools, you’ll be equipped to find “land,” as your ancestors did.
The Meeting begins at 10:00 a.m. in the North Kansas City Library. Come and bring a friend.

While Beth continues to research her family, she shares her knowledge through lectures, articles, her blog, and one-on-one assistance. She particularly enjoys speaking at regional conferences.
