Join the Indiana Archives Virtual Volunteer Program!
Looking for something to do from home? Join our FromThePage project and become a Virtual Volunteer! We have started a new project to transcribe the Jeffersonville Land Office Receipt Books.
Sales of public land by the United States Government in Indiana began in 1801, and sales at the Jeffersonville Land Office began in 1808. This receipt book from the Jeffersonville Land Office gives the name and residence of the purchaser, the dates of the purchase, the legal description of the tract purchased, the amount of land, the receipt number, and the price. Some of Indiana's "founding fathers" can be found in these books, including Enoch McCarty, George Rapp, and John DePauw.
You can help create an index these records from home - all you need is an Internet connection.
To help, visit our Jeffersonville Land Office Receipt Books project on FromThePage.com and click Start Transcribing. You will be prompted to sign up for a free account.
For some transcription tips, check the Help tab on the page for any individual Work, and please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
