I’ve added two new indices to the warrantee maps for Strasburg Township and West Lampeter Township. These indices include the warrantee’s name, the patentee’s name, the tract number (if available), the patent reference (book, volume, page), the survey reference (book, volume, page), and the tract name (if available). The surveys and warrantee maps can be found online at the Pennsylvania State Archives website.
The warrantee township maps are a useful tool in researching your family history and provide an excellent means of visualizing the location of a specific piece of property within the borders of a specific township.
However, when you want to quickly determine if a specific name can be found on the map, it can difficult to do. Frustrated by having to search the map for each name I wanted to locate, I decided to create an index for each township map that I use on a regular basis. Now, I’ve made them available to other researchers. Please see a list of currently available on the Online Genealogy Documents page.
