The warrantee township maps available at the Pennsylvania State Archives website 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 be difficult to do.
The warrantee map index series provides a clear, concise consolidation of the information found on each warrantee map. They include the following information (as available) for each tract of land on the map(s):
- the tract number (if one is assigned on the map)
- warrant number
- the name of the warrantee
- the survey (book, volume, and page) with a link to the survey online
- the name of the person to whom the tract was surveyed
- the patent (book, volume, and page)
- the name of the patentee
- tract name
Additionally, direct links are provided to the online warrantee map, the land documents order form from the Pennsylvania State Archives, as well as additional pages on the Archives’ website.
Each of the warrantee map index PDFs covers one of the original townships from the creation of Lancaster County in 1729. With the information provided by these PDFs, you can easily order the original land warrant or land patent from the Pennsylvania State Archives.
The Old Lampeter Warrantee Map index includes an index for both the present-day townships of East and West Lampeter.
