Township, Section, Range: Looking at Land Records

Wednesday, July 2 from 10:00 11:30 a.m.

Township 1, Range 43 West, Section 2. Does this make sense to you? Have you always been curious about the "secret language" of legal land descriptions? Come learn about Federal land records and the difference between what you will discover at the National Archives versus the county or state archives. Topics include locating information about bounty land warrants, homestead files, and land tract books.

Resources for Ethnic Genealogy Research

Wednesday, July 30 from 10:00 11:30 a.m.

During certain time periods in U.S. history, the Government created and maintained unique records about certain ethnicities of people. Learn about this variety of resources and records available through the National Archives for ethnic genealogy research.

To make a reservation for these free workshops call 816-268-8000 or email kansascity.archives@nara.gov.
