Archives - Land Records - Atlases and County Plat Books

Atlases and county plat books provide area maps and show land ownership by township. Block plats of projected towns in each county also can be found. A subscribers' index is usually at the end of the volume with general information on the owner and location of land holdings in the county listed by township and range. A few early photographs are also included. The following is an inventory of the collection with * indicating those microfilmed. See microfilm list below.
