The Official Federal Land Patent
Records Site 

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), General Land Office (GLO) Records Automation web site provides live database access to Federal land conveyance records for the Public Land States. Image access is provided to more than two million Federal land title records for Eastern Public Land States, issued between 1820 and 1908.  Images of Serial patents, issued between 1908 and the mid-1960's are currently being added to this web site. Due to organization of documents in the GLO collection, this web site does not currently contain every Federal title record issued for the listed states.
