"The Goodliest Soyle" Finding, Reading, & Interpreting North Carolina Land Records focuses on the deeds, the land-grant process, reading the land records, and analyzing the land records. Ms. Leary discusses the ways a person acquires land. In colonial times, English Common Law governed property rights. Knowing the law, the records it created, and the location of those records is necessary for successful searches.

Once found, the genealogist must read and interpret the record. Correct analysis is important to glean the maximum information from each document. Ms. Leary provides the listener with tools and tips to reach a successful outcome.


Webinar CD includes video and syllabus.
