This Manual addresses document examination procedures in the Land Titles Office, and is primarily intended to provide assistance to Government of Alberta employees working in that area.It does not purport to be a guide as to the substantive law in respect to any of the topics covered nor is it a substitute for legal research.
Religious organizations and congregations can incorporate so they can own the land where their house of worship or cemetery is located.
The land records that are generally of most interest to genealogists are the land entry case files. There are over ten million such individual land transactions in the custody of the National Archives.
These are records that document the transfer of public lands from the U. These case files cover land entries in all 30 public land states.
We are set up to provide an accurate, efficient online service, providing copies of almost any record we hold on demand. In some cases the size, binding or fragility of the record means it cannot be digitised, and you will need to view the paper original in person.
Land title and survey records provide an accurate and up-to-date picture of legal ownership of privately owned land in New Zealand. In the same way, the Crown property records we hold provide detailed information about land owned or managed by the Crown on behalf of all New Zealanders.
