Colonial Land as It Relates
to Genealogical Research
This program will explain the original land grants such as the 1629
Grant to the Massachusetts Bay Company, the 1632 Maryland Grant to Lord
Baltimore, the 1630 Grant to Plymouth Colony, and others. The program
will also look at the spread of settlement into the backcountry during
the period 1770-1800. The program will be a combination of video
presentation and looking at websites where records can be found. The
program will be facilitated by Nancy Thompson.
Each month the genealogy society presents information that will help
with your research. Support your local society with your presence
at meetings and with your membership. The Nevada Library Genealogy Department is open to researchers during
all regular Library hours. Wi-fi is available if you bring your
personal device. Two computers in the Genealogy Dept. are
available exclusively for genealogy research. A $25 12-month
library card can be obtained at the circulation desk if you live
