“A rock? A stump? An oak tree? And isn’t a perch a fish? Beginning at a place of confusion, thence to a point of understanding, “Making Sense of Metes and Bounds” helps researchers conquer the difficulties encountered when working with this type of property description. The real value of these records is the number of clues they provide. While basic terminology, platting (drawing out the properties), and tips for locating properties on a map will all be covered, the focus of the presentation is how understanding the basics of metes and bounds can pay big dividends and advance your genealogical research.”

Everyone is welcome. Please join us at the Uniontown Library, 2nd floor, at noon.
