Bureau Of Land Management keeps records from these States online, Alabama, Arkansas, Flordia, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. - This site has information dating back to 1812 which was when the General Land Office came into existence. The BLM is what was created when the General Land Office and another agency were merged. The site tells this history. They, also, have archived all the records of the orginal two agencies. These records, including land patents, are now online at the site. (The site is searchable using the usual conventions. You do not need to fill in every box with information. Filling in just the last name of the patentee, which is how I found what I was looking for, works just fine.)
