To the left you will find the index to the Land Patents in Vanderburgh County. I do not have additional information. If you want additional information, please click on the link above for the Bureau of Land Management.

Land patents document the transfer of land ownership from the federal government to individuals. Our land patent records include the information recorded when ownership was transferred.

These record have: Patentee Name, State, Issue, Date, Doc. Number, Accession or Serial Number.

It takes quite a bit of time to go through each letter and sort out the Vanderburgh entries. I'll add more daily. If you'd like to volunteer to help, please let me know. I'll show you how I've done the search!
