Pennsylvania Warrant Registers, 1733-1957

Buried on the website of the Pennsylvania State Archives are scanned images of Pennsylvania Warrant Registers, 1733-1957. These are indexes to "the original land warrants, surveys and patents for about 70% of the land in the Commonwealth." Entries within each county are arranged (sort of) alphabetically by warrantee's surname, and then (kind of) chronologically by date of warrant. Patentee's names are included in the records, but are not indexed here.
