Carter County, Kentucky

Why deeds are valuable research documents...from the Carter County, Kentucky, GenWeb site (an excerpt below):

- Deed books contain Affidavits of Descent.
- Deeds often indicate who lived near a grantee.
- Signatures on deeds can sometimes be used to distinguish between individuals with similar names. 

The site also has a helpful tutorial--Deeds 101--that is quite interesting.

There are deed images at this site, too.
