This collection of land ownership pedigrees from Moga covers the years 1887 to 1960.

- How the subdivisions were named
- Record keeper's name
- Revenue collector's name

How to Use the Record
The Urdu language script is read from right to left, as are the land ownership pedigrees. Records prior to 1950 are written in Urdu; thereafter the records are written in Punjabi.
Families and pedigrees are recorded in the land records. Extended pedigrees from biographies, some going back 110 generations to 2200 BC.
Why the Record Was Created
The Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India, has initiated a centrally sponsored scheme to computerize land records. The centrally sponsored scheme on Computerization of Land Records (CoLR) was started as a pilot project in eight districts/states:
- Rangareddy (Andhra Pradesh)
- Sonitpur (Assam)
- Singbhum (Bihar)
- Gandhinagar (Gujarat)
- Morena (Madhya Pradesh)
- Wardha (Maharashtra)
- Mayurbhanj (Orissa)
- Dungarpur (Rajasthan)
These records are very reliable.
