    Advanced Search Form

    Virginia Colclasure Newbie

      Cannot figure out how to use the Advanced Search Form for Land Records. Found the BLM record and the Record Group ID number 49, but don't understand the terms of what to put where.
      Any help will be appreciated.

          With the BLM record number, I suggest you contact the textual reference staff - archives1reference@nara.gov  Most likely this record has not yet been digitized and added to the Catalog.  The reference staff would best be able to help you.


          If you want to search the Catalog using and advanced search and knowing the record group, I suggest the following steps:


          1.  Click on Advanced Search

          2. Place the Record Group Number in the Record Group search field.  Then add the BLM record number in quotations  in the search term field and click Search.

          3. If you do have a list of results, use the filters on the left to refine your search to the correct time period, etc.
