Why Examine Deed Records? #georgiapioneers #gaancestors

More on Examining Deed Records

Tressle over Pumpkinvine Creek in Paulding County
Since deeds denote the year of arrival of a person in a county, as well as his exit, this is an important factor in tracing the movements (and time periods) of ancestors. A comparison with any surviving Tax Digests for those years is also indicated in order to compare the acreage, adjoining waterways and names of neighbors.  The deed itself provides a legal description of the home place which can be located on the map of the tax accessor at the court house.  Districts and lot numbers will take you straight away to the location.  Find your Georgia Ancestors
