Thank you! This is amazing.
My hope is to end up with a map connecting the original land grants, starting with Lough, Fisher, Conrad, Smith, Pence, Bennett, etc. It wouldn't be a snapshot in time, since the grants have different dates.
I don't know whether Google Earth and its "path" and "overlay" capabilities would be a solution. My skills and experience with it are not high. I drew and overlaid simple small property boundaries using Google Earth while house-hunting a couple years ago, but nothing on the scale of these land grants. The biggest problems for me are the ones you have tackled--namely, plotting the outlines of each grant, following each one through time and finding the location on the ground.
Your thoughts? This is very exciting, and it's a pleasure to have made contact with you.
