Jackson County land records dating from 1854 to 1946 are now available at the Black River Falls Public Library-Jackson County History Room. The purchase of the 27 microfilm reels was made possible through a grant awarded to the History Room by the Lunda Charitable Trust. The films were purchased from the Family History Library at Salt Lake City, Utah, with permission from Jackson County Register of Deeds, Shari Marg, custodian of the records.
“Not only are these land records of great value to those doing family genealogy, they are also a wealth of information for those individuals or groups doing community histories and researching land and business ownerships.” -Mary I. Woods, Library Historian
Originally filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah in 1985, the films include name indexes of both grantor and grantee with reference to legal descriptions, along with maps.
