Description : Land was wealth to our ancestors. As a record of the transfer of land, a deed can be a genealogical goldmine to the family historian. Not only does a deed put a person in a specific place at a specific time, but it can inform us of relationships between buyer, seller, and sometimes even previous owners; name spouses, occupations, and neighbors; and provide clues as to the affluence-or lack thereof-of those involved. Lancaster County-known as America's Garden Spot-was one of the earliest settled areas of Pennsylvania. Digital copies of county deeds from 1729 through 1986 are available online through the Recorder of Deeds. However, only those after 1981 are indexed. This book provides a full name index to buyer and seller for deed books A through D, covering the period 1729 through 1760. Each listing includes the names of grantor and grantee, the book, the date the deed was written, the date it was recorded, and both page number and image number for easy access to the correct online file.
