Description

POSTAGE $5.00 Land research can tell us so much about how our ancestors lived and worked. If can help us find out the truth about stories we've heard, and can give us a much richer picture of our ancestors' social and economic position. If they owned a house, business premises or rural property there are records to be found, many of which contain a wealth of information. We can also break down brick walls using land records that we have been otherwise unable to solve. Buying or selling property may have been the only time our ancestors dealt with government in colonial times, and land records can contain evidence such as birthdates and names of family members; information that is recorded nowhere else. This book will introduce you to the main types of records you can find, such as deeds and grants, Torrens titles, Crown leases, selections and conditional purchases, closer and soldier settlements, title applications, maps, and plans. We will look at what they mean and where to find them in New Zealand and each Australian state and territory. Whether you are researching the history of your house or tracing the history of an ancestor through the property they owned, this book is for you. Softcover, A5, 79 pages Carole Riley, 2012
