Excerpts from "Digging Into Ohio's Early Land Records," by Thomas Aquinas Burke in Preview, Ohio Historical Society, Vol. 4 No. 2, Spring 1995.
In the fall of 1994, a significant number of land office records held for many years by the Ohio Auditor of State were transferred to the OHS A/L. These historical records -- the oldest dating from the late eighteenth century -- include
plats, survey notes, tract and entry books documenting the original subdivision of the Ohio Country. Also included are Virginia Military District entries and surveys, and various card indexes.
