Scope and Content Note

These cards index: State Engineer and Surveyor Series A4016, Records of Surveys and Maps of State Lands, ca. 1686-1892. The index is arranged in more than one alphabetical sequence and includes various topical entries such as islands, surnames, geographical place names, certificates, lakes, and municipalities. The file is repetitive, somewhat disorganized, and confusing to use.

The index also includes many special subject categories such as county and town bounds, forfeited lands, lands under water, patents and grants, reservations, warrants to survey and return of surveys. Part of the index is arranged by book number and covers only volumes 1-4, 6, and 8-10.
