USGenWeb will not tolerate any copyright violations.  Lookup requests should be limited to one name, or perhaps two if it is a married couple.
Information given will be minimal, for example, if it is a cemetery lookup, the information will be the name of the cemetery
and dates on the headstone.  Please do not ask for "everyone with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed;
the volunteers have been asked not to comply with such requests.

Our lookups will extend to searching the book to determine if the book would be helpful to you in your research.
Should the book prove useful, we can provide the author's address and ordering information.
The USGenWeb Project will endeavor to get a WRITTEN statement from each copyright holder which stipulates

Nancy Kinard of the Arphax Publishing Company sent the following link regarding a book they have published.  It is a great tool!  It maps the county by congressional townships listing all the original land patents issues as indexed on the Federal Land Patent Site.  For information about the book, click here.

Sample Map Page on pages 7 and 8 of this .pdf file you can see an actual map for Leake County Mississippi (this will show you the time span and great cluster research tool that these maps are).  You will notice on the map on page 7 of this .pdf file there are 206 parcels of land mapped with 158 patents covering 104 individuals spanning form 6/1-18/1938 to 6/30/1919.  This map is for only one township in the county.

There are 20 Congressional townships in the Fulton County book so there would be 20 patent maps in the book.  On pages 9-12 you can see the corresponding roadways, waterway map other listings such as cemeteries and cities.
