Ohio Land Tract Books

I have found memories of working with the Ohio land tract books in the "shopping mall" in Springfield, Virginia, at the Eastern States Land Office, Bureau of Land Management. We always stopped there on tours led by Mary Beebe of Ashland. I don't think many Ohio researchers are using these since there only the indexes in the ledgers themselves. They are certainly great for proving those First Families of Ohio ancestors, 1820 and earlier in Ohio. I'll copy the links in from the FamilySearch web site. If they don't work, you'll need to go to the site directly and log in first. They are way at the bottom of the expanded database list. Enjoy!
