The GLO website provides access to over 8 million records, some dating back to the late 1700s. Thousands of records are still being added to this website to include patents, tract books, and maps. These records contain rich genealogical information. Also, the information on the website allows researchers to locate the original land entry papers held by the National Archives. Attendees will discover the scope and importance of records on the BLM website that document the first transfer of federal land and much more. Even if your ancestor did not live in one of the public land states, they could have applied for military bounty land. Examples will be presented using the website in a variety of roles such as locating land, discovering the FAN club, finding the information to order records, and much more. Also, other online resources related to this data such as HistoryGeo, a subscription website, that presents the GLO data in a manner friendly to genealogical research will be demonstrated.
