Since its inception, the growth of the United States has been based on its westward expansion by hearty individuals who were willing to meet the challenges of the frontier. These ancestors obtained land, developed it and left its heritage for us to appreciate.

After a brief review of land description terms, we will use genealogical databases such as Ancestry.com and land patents and military warrants at the General Land Office website to locate our ancestors’ homesteads. Then we will use online applications to find the old homestead on modern maps, even down to Google street view!
