Conrad's Stories

The life and times of the Conrad Adam family in Kendall County, Texas

With COVID-19 still going strong, it is almost impossible to go to any facility to do any hands-on research,  so here is the next best thing.   To research Bexar County, Texas Land Records (Deed Records), Land Plats, and Marriages, go to https://bexar.tx.publicsearch.us/ and use the drop-down menu to select your choice.  Once you have typed in a person’s name and the list appears, you can choose which document you want to read.  You get to see the digitized copy of the actual document!

I took a genealogy course several years ago, and the instructor said always read the Deed records.  You will be surprised what you find.  Land records make my eyes roll around in my head with the terminology and the land description.  Although, since Texas uses Spanish varas, it can sometimes be interesting to read the boundaries., especially those next to the tree with the bird nest or the small pile of rocks.  After forcing myself to read some deeds, it is amazing what I found and what I did not find about my ancestors.   The deeds records helped me sort out family relations and introduced children I did not know existed. My instructor was right!
