"The" Place for Original U.S. Landowner Maps

Two sections (2 square miles) showing landowners.
Welcome to the home of the Family Maps series of Land Patent Books and the Texas Land Survey Maps series. These books are published by county for over 500 counties (so far), and display original settlers indexed by either the U.S. Bureau of Land Management or the Texas General Land Office.

These are one-of-a-kind, customized maps created by attorney, software engineer, and family historian, Gregory A. Boyd. For the first time, you can locate your ancestor's Federal or Texas land purchase by simply finding them in one of our indexes, which direct you to a map of first-land-owners. And now you can learn who your ancestors' neighbors were or the history of settlement in area of interest to you! The Family Maps and Texas Land Survey Maps books are a helpful visual reference tool that make your landowner and parcel-boundary research easier than ever.
