USA Land Patents

Land patents document the transfer of land ownership from the federal government to individuals. The land patent records include the information recorded when ownership was transferred

In the very early years of the United States, the Congress of the Confederation declared it would sell or grant the unclaimed lands in "the West" (given up by the States to the United States) for the common benefit of the United States. The States gave up their claims to what is now Alabama, Michigan, part of Minnesota, Mississippi, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The United States could then sell this unclaimed land to raise money for the Treasury. In turn, the United States gave up its claims to any land within the boundaries of the Colonies. This office maintains the original survey plats and field notes for eight of the Eastern public land states (AL, AR, FL, LA, MI, MN, MS, WI). The duplicate original survey plats and field notes are also housed in this office for sixteen of the Western public land states (AZ, AK, CA, CO, ND, SD, ID, MT, NE, NV, NM, OK, OR, UT, WA, WY).
