|Title page of William E Alexander's plat book on San Diego county, published about 1912 by the Pacific Plat Book Co. in Los Angeles, available through the online Maps division of the Library of Congress.|
This Plat Book of San Diego County, California (1912) is a great snapshot of the county for anyone with ancestors in the area then.
Using my 1st cousin 3x removed Frank Paul Hartley as an example, I will try to locate where he or his closest relatives (his mother Hannah L (Mount) Hartley and Wilmer Hartley) were.
|Hannah and Wilmer were in the General Land Office Records of the US Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM)|
|Note that this means page 138 in the book, not page 138 as designated by the LOC|
The names on the land are for "W. Hartley" and "F. P. Hartley," undoubtably Wilmer and Frank Paul Hartley. I don't know where Hannah would be (she died only about 3 years after this plat book was published).
|There they are in the lower left hand. Note that there are Salazars nearby, I wonder if they are the same ones the Curreys knew?|
