Using a Deed Chart to Trace Your Deeds

One of the most important aspects of researching the history of your house is tracing the deeds. The deeds provide you with the name of the owner(s) of the home. You need the name of the owner to find many other types of documents such as census records.

Using a chart to trace your deed helps you keep track of the information you have found.

Here are two deed charts your can use to trace your deeds:

1. Deed Chart - PDF document

2. Deed Chart - Word .doc document

Happy Deed Hunting!

  1. Very cool! I just downloaded both files and now I just have to use them. I have an idea for someone else's farm, and I can use your charts. What do you do when the property subdivides?
