Platting and Locating Lands from
Metes and Bounds Deeds

with Pam Miller

This workshop is closed. 

Using deeds and other land records to assist with researching family history can help us gain a better understanding of the family, the land, and the community.

Pam Miller is back with an encore of this popular workshop!

This hands-on workshop will help you:
  •     understand the terminology of metes and bounds deeds
  •     extract the critical information for platting and locating
  •     create a hand-drawn plat of actual properties
  •     use some of the online land platting tools
  •     locate old properties on current maps

Please bring a calculator and pencils with erasers. Pam will furnish graph paper, rulers, and protractors. Laptops are strongly encouraged, but not required. If you have an old deed, please bring it for the hands-on exercise.
The class is limited to twelve participants and is a free benefit of membership. Non-members fee is $20.00* and can be applied towards membership on the day of the workshop.

Pre-registration is required. Walk-ins will not be admitted.

Registration confirmations will be sent to the first twelve registrants. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.
