Search for the Ladies at the BLM Site

Don't forget to search for your female ancestors at the BLM site They may have applied for bounty land as a widow or filed a federal land claim in their own name. Don't forget the female half of your ancestry.

  1. Never thought about the women before!
    Also, if you search by TWP, Sec, & range, you may find some unexpected surprises. I found a military warrant where my ancestor received land for his service in the Mexican war.
