By Jeannette Holland Austin
It is essential for the genealogist to search the deed records in the county where the ancestors resided. The reason is to learn what State and County they originated from beforehand and other pertinent details. The problem with old deeds, however, is the vagueness of the land description. That is because the earliest transactions were from land grants and were measured by chains, oak trees, pine forests and the like. There were no adjoining neighbors until the area began to be populated. Therefore, next we go to the Tax Digests and follow the trail annually, by each payment or declaration of tax. From one year to the next, more acreage could be added in other counties. Watch for names of adjoining neighbors, the amount of acreage, waterways and streams, and the like. The next thing to do is obtain a county map with a good legend of churches and cemeteries. You will be surprised what you find! Visit the area, speak with neighbors, use the map.
