"This CD is a companion to the book "Early Landowners of Pennsylvania: Atlas of Township Warrantee Maps of Dauphin County, PA" available from http://ancestortracks.com. There are three sets of images on this CD: (1) the original Township Warrantee Maps on file in Harrisburg in .jpg format; (2) the original Township Warrantee Maps on file in Harrisburg in .pdf format; and (3) Dauphin County Township Warrantee Maps superimposed with modern road maps in both .jpg and .pdf formats. We contracted with the Dauphin Co. Office of Information Technology to produce these geo-referenced maps for this CD so that descendants of the earliest landowners can pinpoint their ancestors' tracts on the current road system. The Dauphin Co. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) staff superimposed images of modern road maps onto the images of the scanned Township Warrantee Maps. Because the original Township Warrantee Maps have few physical features on them, the staff generally used water features to match the road maps with the warrant maps. Unfortunately, many of the creeks shown on the Township Warrantee Maps have changed course, making the roads slightly to one side of their actual location. Keep in mind that modern roads often follow the outer boundaries of original tracts. In fact, that is exactly why land tracts were nearly always sold with a 6% allowance for roads. Use that knowledge to mentally reorient the road maps so that the major roads lay along tract boundaries rather than through the original tracts. Note that there are two versions of the GIS maps on the CD, both of which have been reduced to fit on 11" X 17" paper. Zoom in to see names of current roads and their approximate locations. To see tract details without the roads, of course, consult the full-size .jpg and .pdf Township Warrantee Maps on this CD." -- Information screen

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
