This collection contains petitions for land grants in California prior to its becoming a state.

The collection is organized into volumes of handwritten books in Spanish with an English translation counterpart. After these books and a Maps section, there is a typed index (Printed Grantee Index) that we will be capturing the records from. For the Spanish books (Original Form Type) we will be keying the page number and a year for each page. For the English translation books (Translation) we will only be capturing page number.

When the collection is completely keyed, the record captured from the Index will link to the Spanish and English books, as well as any corresponding maps.

Be sure you are keying from the correct "Printed Grantee Index." Details on how to identify this form type may be found in the Form Type field help.
