In this session you will learn how to access the Grant Register which covers 80 years of Crown land grants, purchases and leases from 1792–1862. We’ll also show you how to find and view thousands of registered ‘Old System’ title deeds ranging from 1825 to 1987 and where to access registered title deeds that date back to as early as 1794.
The Historical Land Records Viewer (HLRV) provides free access to over 6 million digitised land records for New South Wales, dating back to the 1790s. These documents are invaluable sources for local and family history research but can sometimes be challenging to find in this fascinating yet complex database.
