Notes

Microfilm of original records in The National Archives, Suitland, Maryland.

Contains records from the La Grande Land Office, Oregon City Land Office, Winchester-Roseburg Land Office, The Dalles Land Office, Olympia Land Office, Colfax-Spokane Falls Land Office, Walla Walla Land Office, and Vancouver Land Office.

"The donation claims files are arranged alphabetically by name of State and thereunder by name of land office. For each office there is a main series for approved claims, arranged by final certificate number. There are some variations in the arrangement of records for several offices. ..."

"Documents within the files are arranged as nearly as possible in the order in which they were maintained by the clerks in the land offices. ... The records for a typical donation claim are filmed as follows: the endorsement on the outer page, followed by the final certificate, the notification, and the other documents in chronological order. For the files not having final certificates, the notations on the outer page have been filmed first, followed by the notification and other documents. For canceled or rejected claims some documents may not be present, especially the final certificate." For more detailed information see explanation at front of films.

Some pages are missing and were not microfilmed.

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.
