*Images of Each Register Page*

The Donation Land register includes a patent index and related lists concerning the Donation Land program, bound together with information concerning the Donation Land Lottery held on December 20, 1794. This is the register currently in use for indentifying records of individual land tracts. The volume contains eight distinct sections, namely:

The listing of tracts is grouped by district and arranged numerically by tract number, with the index grouped alphabetically by surname of the claimant. The remainder of the listings are grouped alphabetically by the surname of the claimant, except for the James Trimble accounting of fees received, which is organized chronologically.
