Alabama Land Patents Database: Clarke County - Surnames Beginning A-C

These land records represent the transfer of public
lands to private ownership. In most cases they
represent purchase of the land by individuals from the
United States Government. Others are the result of
homesteading, Indian cessions or treaties, or bounty
lands given to military veterans.

This database of more than 330,000 records can be
browsed and is based on the original raw database of
the General Land Office, a precursor to the Bureau of
Land Management.

The BLM is in the process of scanning and putting on-
line all of these records for you to see and print out
for your own use.

http://www.glorecords.blm.gov

The database this introduction is appended to may
contain errors the BLM has corrected as they double
checked every record while scanning the documents.
Once you have found an entry of interest in this
database, be sure to double check it against the BLM
web site.

The county designation in this database represents
what county the land is in today, not what county it
was at the time the individual took possession of the
land, as county boundaries have changed many times
over the years.
