Clues in Metes and Bounds Descriptions

Sometimes the uninitiated is not aware of the neighborhood clues that are contained in a metes and bounds property description from state land states. These descriptions are the ones that give the boundaries of the property by listing the points, the angles, and the lengths of each side. Frequently these descriptions will mention by names the other owners of properties that border the property being transferred.

This can be a great way to get names of neighbors of your ancestor.
