While preparing for a trip to Texas I came across excellent digital images of land grants and patents on the Texas General Land Office website. I must say, “Well done, Texas. Your General Land Office website is the Biggest and Best state land office website I have found on the web!”
Trying to learn more about what I had found, I came across this helpful guide to the different types of land grants in Texas. It comes with sample images of each type of grant, which is what I especially like about it. If any of you are doing Texas research, you will like this link by P2 Energy Solutions.
While in Texas I plan to “research” the Texas State Fair. If it is not the Biggest and Best I will be surprised. I hear they have fried butter, fried Twinkies, and fried cobbler there. Yee Haw!
But I also will be on the trail of my Texas ancestors, and am hoping the Biggest and Best surprises await me in central Texas’ hill country. I will keep you posted.
