Reconstructing an Eighteenth Century "Metes and Bounds" Neighborhood for Genealogical Research  (Program)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox Street, Castle Rock, CO 8010
Presented by Kirk Woosley Patton
This presentation will explore the development of a neighborhood reconstruction project and its benefits for genealogical research. Professional genealogist Kirk Patton will discuss his ongoing effort to plat original land grants in a neighborhood settled in the late 1700’s in Kentucky, and will demonstrate the value of establishing connections between adjacent land owners whose property boundaries were established with "metes and bounds" descriptions. The program will examine the integration of records associated with land ownership, focusing on what those records might reveal about the relationships between neighbors.
