Land records are very useful in tracing your ancestors' paths through history, revealing where they lived at various stages of their lives. Often this may be the only way to document their presence in a locale before periodic censuses were introduced. In some cases, entire wills have been transcribed into the early records to document the inter-generational transfer of land. These records, when they refer to spouses and children, are invaluable.
