Land and property records can place an ancestor in a particular location, provide economic information, and reveal family relationships. Land records include: deeds, abstracts and indexes, mortgages, leases, grants and land patents.

See Maine Land and Property for additional information about early Maine land grants. After land was transferred to private ownership, subsequent transactions were usually recorded at the county courthouse and where records are currently housed.

Vital Records[edit | edit source]

In Massachusetts, the original vital records (birth, marriage, or death) are found with the clerk of the town or city where the event occurred. The recording of these records was ordered by the government as early as 1639, though not all places followed the law. For more information about these records, go to the Wiki page for the town or city.

Vital Records consist of births, adoptions, marriages, divorces, and deaths recorded on registers, certificates, and documents. See Massachusetts Vital Records for more information about Vital records in Massachusetts.
