New Project – Tennessee, Early Land Registers

The Tennessee, Early Land Registers are reminiscent of the Delaware, Land Records but I think they are a little easier – you can decide for yourselves.  The records are handwritten and you may find that the images have some heavy shadowing in between the pages.  If you are unsure of a letter try using the wildcards to determine what the illegible letter could be – there were a few names that I had difficulty with.  Once you have read through a few of the records you get used to the handwriting and recognize the shapes and strokes of the letters, and we are only keying the grant numbers, names and dates which are easier to recognize.

Happy keying!
