Part Number: WXUTLANDMP_

Price: $9.95
Utah land has an interesting history that begins with Mexican ownership until 1847 and then the responsibility for land distribution was taken over by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It wasn’t until 1855 that the federal land survey began in Utah. Understanding where the records are depends on the historical time period. To better understand the land and your ancestor place, a good map of Utah is a must. We will take a look at land records historically and where they can be found. We will also look at maps through the history of Utah and what map collections can help you better understand the places your ancestor lived.

47 minutes, plus 5 pages of handouts. The recording is also included as part of the monthly or annual membership.
Part Number: WXCOUNTUT_

Price: $9.95
One of the first things we do as family history researchers is to track our ancestor in the federal census. This provides us with a time and place for our family. But there are other records that can also provide that information. Aside from the federal census, it’s important to be familiar with state specific censuses, directories (city as well as topical) and voter registrations. These resources provide names, relationships, addresses, occupations and other genealogically important data. We’ll look at what is available and where to find these items online and off.

Part Number: WXBLND1812_

Price: $9.95
Land given as a “Bounty” for military service has been an American tradition from the Colonial Era up to the Civil War when the practice saw its ultimate discontinuance. The Spanish-American and Mexican-American Wars and the battle waged by the veterans for their bounty land tell the story of a nation and a military in transition. Lucky for us genealogists, there is a “bounty” of both military pension and land-purchase records left behind to tell the story both nationally and personally.
