History

"The origin of the Iowa Land Records Collection is a fascinating tale which dates from the period 1957 -- 1962. In these years descendants of the Sac and Fox Nation and the Iowa Nation of Indians filed various damage suits before the Indian Claims Commission of the United States Court of Claims to collect damages for several unconscionable land treaties which the federal government had forced upon them in 1839 and 1843. Congress created the Indian Claims Commission in 1946 to consider these long-standing grievances of their recalcitrant aboriginal wards. The so-called "cession lands" involved in the recent claims cases covered the entire southeastern half of the state (Royce Cessions 175, 226, 244, 262) and totaled almost 21 million acres. The legal proceedings involved two steps: validation of title and valuation of the land. The second step -- to determine the value of the land as of the treaty date -- was most important for future scholars since these hearings prompted the collection of extensive information on land sales in the treaty areas. The valuation hearings for eastern Iowa lands (Cessions 175, 226, 244) were held in Washington in 1962; those for south central Iowa (Cession 262) were in 1965."

"Determining the "fair market value" of the various cession areas in Iowa prior to or on the valuation date was complicated by the lack of an active land market at the time. Federal law forbade Indians to sell their land to private American citizens. As a matter of general policy, therefore, the Indian Claims Commission recognizes subsequent land sales in the subject area as a highly relevant indicator of prospective value as of the valuation date. On this premise, legal counsel for the Indian claimants undertook a massive study of county land records in the cession areas. Some 360 land record books covering the pioneer years from 1838 through 1860 were microfilmed and reprinted by Xerox process. Skilled abstractors then codified the vital information which was transferred to punch cards and eventually to magnetic data tapes. The processing cost was extremely high, running into the tens of thousands of dollars, but the stakes were even higher for the Indian petitioners, amounting to more than twenty million dollars."

From Swierenge, Robert P. "The Iowa Land Records Collection: Periscope to the Past." Books at Iowa, Vol. 13:No.20, pp. 25-30.


Scope and Contents

"The Iowa Land Records Collection includes both primary and processed data. The original records consist of Xerox reprints of the County Recorders' Books of Original Entry of fifty-three counties, printed from microfilm copies taken in the respective county seats. These books, usually one per county, are available for the following counties: Appanoose, Benton, Blackhawk, Boone, Buchanan, Calhoun, Carroll, Cedar, Clarke, Clayton, Clinton, Dallas, Davis, Decatur, Delaware, Des Moines, Dubuque, Greene, Grundy, Guthrie, Hamilton, Hardin, Henry, Iowa, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Jones, Keokuk, Lee, Linn, Louisa, Lucas, Madison, Mahaska, Marion, Marshall, Monroe, Muscatine, Polk, Poweshiek, Ringgold, Scott, Story, Tama, Union, Van Buren, Wapello, Warren, Washington, Wayne, and Webster."

"Also among the primary sources in the collection are microfilm copies of several Iowa state land-office tract books on file in the office of the Secretary of State at Des Moines. These typewritten tract books, compiled as a WPA project in the 1930s, record the disposition of the special land grants to the state from the United States government, specifically, the Sixteenth Section grant (School lands), Internal Improvement (500,000-acre) grant, Saline grant, University grant, Agricultural College grant, Five-Section grant, Des Moines River Improvement grant, Iowa City town lot auction book, and a volume of miscellaneous conveyances to the state. All of the original entry records, whether federal or state, contain similar information -- the legal description of each tract and its exact acreage, the name of the purchaser, purchase date, consideration paid, and often the method of payment, i.e., cash, land warrant, or donation."

"The processed records include a rich variety of computer-tabulated listings of the original records that were abstracted from some 58 Books of Original Entry and 299 early Deed Registers. Most valuable are the alphabetical and chronological listings of all items in the Books of Original Entry of the thirty-three full counties of Royce Cession 262 and the nineteen selected townships (one per county) in Cessions 175, 226, and 244 of eastern Iowa. The alphabetical listings are arranged by grantor and the chronological listings are by year of entry," i.e., the sale date. Both listings are grouped by individual counties (or townships) and also by the two major cession areas of southcentral and eastern Iowa. The tabulations include summary statistics of all entries in the various groups, including annual sales figures. The entries of the large buyers -- those who acquired 600 acres or more in the thirty-three counties of south central Iowa -- are also grouped separately in alphabetical order by individuals and in sub-groups by year and by county. The tabulations of the deed records include alphabetical and chronological listings of all land transactions after original entry through 1849 in the nineteen eastern counties (through 1856 for four selected counties-Clayton, Delaware, Johnson, Linn), and through 1860 for the thirty-three south central counties. A special tabulation of the eastern data lists all grantors who had ten or more sales or who had aggregate sales totaling more than 500 acres prior to the end of 1849."

From Swierenge, Robert P. "The Iowa Land Records Collection: Periscope to the Past." Books at Iowa, Vol. 13:No.20, pp. 25-30.

In 1984, Robert Swierenga donated papers and microfilms he had created or gathered in his research. These include James Easley papers; microfilm of tax sales and state land grants; photocopies of manuscript collections, including those for Nathan Gordon, John Honeyman, Andrew Startett, and the Roebling Land Warrant Receipts; and photocopies of volumes of land sales records.

A state-supported effort to provide public access to land records is available at www.iowalandrecords.org. The content of this database may or may not duplicate or overlap the present collection, and its early iteration (circa 2007) was partially taken down in response to concern about private information that may have been inadvertantly revealed.  None the less, it is very much worthwhile to check the site as it will permit machine-searching of many records of land transactions across the state of Iowa.
