When looking at deeds, please remember the time frame of the recording of the deed.

for blog first index

for blog second index


The deeds are recorded when they are brought to the courthouse, NOT the original date of the deed.


So, if you are looking for someone who may have purchased/sold property sometime between 1850 and 1852, make sure to look in the index for the deed after 1852.  The deed could have been recorded much later.
