Land Survey Records
Reports are stored in paper format only and are not available online at this time. They can be requested for a fee and will be pulled, scanned, and emailed to you. Orders will be filled as quickly as possible. Please send a list of which reports you need with the relevant information to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a land surveyor. An invoice for your filled request will follow a few days later and is payable by check or credit card. If you are a member of the general public, please send your request for information to the reference desk at email@example.com
View an index map showing the number of reports filed on each corner in a township:
More than one corner, section, and/or suffix may be entered, separated by commas (example: 07E,18E, 23V). This database also contains information filed on something other than a corner. The following abbreviations apply to these special reports: IND=Indian, SPC=special, LOT=lot, AGR=agreement corner, and POT=Mile post.
The index map search will show corner reports shared by more than one township, but the corner reference reports database does not cross-search shared corners. If the number of reports shown on the index map search does not match the number of reference reports listed for that corner, you will need to search the adjoining townships to find the other reports; e.g., to find all the reports for the corner pictured below, you need to perform 4 searches:
- Range 01E, Township 01S, Section 36, Corner 25Z
- Range 01E, Township 02S, Section 01, Corner 25A
- Range 02E, Township 01S, Section 31, Corner 01Z
- Range 02E, Township 02S, Section 06, Corner 01A
