General Land Office Records (Website)

Provides live access to Federal land conveyance records for the Public Land States, including image access to Federal land title records issued between 1820 and the present. It also has images of survey plats and field notes dating back to 1810. Due to the organization of documents in the GLO collection, this site does not currently contain every Federal title record issued for the Public Land States.
