Original surveys of land districts in counties made prior to distribution of land by lottery, 1805-1833, plus resurveys or renewed surveys of districts. These records are from Record Group 003-03-024, Surveyor General -- Survey Records -- District Plats of Survey.
These plats are accompanied by District Survey Field Notebooks. Not all plats are accompanied by field notes. Some districts were resurveyed at a later date and the plat is from the second survey while the field notes are from the original survey, and some field notebooks have not survived. Where the plat is from a resurvey, the original plat has not survived.
