Rectangular Survey System: Fair & Square
Presented by Alice Hoyt Veen, CG
Thursday Mar 3 from 10:00 AM to Noon
Zoom Meeting - Registration Required
Federal lands have been surveyed according to a “rectangular” or “cadastral” survey system since 1785. If your ancestor patented public domain land, chances are his property was surveyed using this method, and probably was later sold or divided in much the same manner. This presentation includes hands-on practice reading and platting rectangular property descriptions. Class Listing

Family History Library Research Trip
March 20-27, 2022

After careful consultation with the CRCGS Board and members, and in consideration of the health and safety of those who had expressed interest in attending our FHL trip to Salt Lake City, we are very sad to announce the cancellation of this trip. We are disappointed to not be able to meet in Salt Lake and enjoy the comradery that comes with these trips, but it is not a decision that we have taken lightly. Please read more on our website.
