Georgia District Plats Of Survey

From the State of Georgia ArchivesDistrict Plats of Survey Information:

Eight times between 1805 and 1833 the state of Georgia held lotteries to distribute western lands, ceded by the Creek and Cherokee through a series of treaties, to Georgia citizens.

Today, the District Plats of Survey remain the legal basis for the land lot system in Georgia.

The District Plats of Survey include the county name; district number; land lot numbers; physical land features, in particular the trees and original forestation; and adjoining district numbers.
