SEARCH TIPS for Online Records

in the Name field, just enter the LAST name, (some of the older data that was converted did not differentiate husbands and wives separately)

When you get your results, you can click on date or grantor or grantee to sort; just give it a minute to do it

Remember,  less is more results,  if it is spelled wrong on the document it is indexed as received;  ie… Ellifitz – Ellifritz  &  Eli  - Ely.  Use EL to pull eli and Ely among others,  ellif will pull ellifitz and ellifritz.
