About this collection

Before Georgia's land lotteries of 1805-1833, land surveyors measured the districts to be distributed and created plat maps. These are the field notes from the original surveys.

 

These field notebooks accompany the District Plats of Survey, though not all field notebooks have a corresponding plat map (some plat maps from these original surveys no longer survive, and some plat maps were created from later surveys).

 

Only two sets of field notes from the two earliest land lotteries have survived:  Baldwin, District 4 (1805 Lottery) and Wilkinson, District 7 (1807 Lottery).

 

These records are from Record Group 003-03-025, Surveyor General -- Survey Records -- Field Notebooks.

 

Usage Note: Users may download the images for personal or educational use - students may include images in reports, for instance, and teachers may use the images in the classroom - if the following credit line is included with the image: Courtesy of the Georgia Archives. Each image has a "Cite as" field in the Document Description. Users can form a complete citation by combining the "Title", date of the map, and "Cite as" fields for the individual image.
