Recording of Patent Records - Wisconsin

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has created a web site devoted to Land Patent records. According to the BLM, "this site provides live database and image access to more than two million Federal land title records for the Eastern Public Land States, issued between 1820 and 1908." These patent records provide information on the first transfer of land titles from the Federal government to individuals. Wisconsin is one of twelve states that comprise the "Eastern States" division. Other states included are: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

In addition to searching for individuals or surnames, the database can be used to trace specific property using legal land descriptions. Certified copies of land patents, can be purchased online or by mail. The cost for all certified documents is $1.50.

Below you will find a list of Zimmerman, Zimerman, and Zimmermann entries from the Land Patent site. Included are the name of the patentee, the county in which the property was located, the year the patent was signed, and the name of the land office. For more detailed information regarding land description, to use an image viewer to see the document, or to order a certified copy of the patent visit the Bureau of Land Management web site.

NOTE:  The names exerpted below are not cross-referenced in the surname database. Although there are some instances where I think one individual is the same as another, i.e. the Michael F. Zimmermann of Dodge County listed below being the same as the Pioneer certified Michael Zimmermann, there is not enough information provided at the BLM site to determine if other individuals match the names supplied to the database.
