A Google search turned up online scans of old land patents. I clicked on the link and I was told that I needed a username and password. My budget for memberships was exhausted and I got distracted and forgot about it. A few days later I came upon the page again and decided to ask if there was anyway to get temporary or "pay-per-view" access for the few documents I wanted immediately.
Turns out there was no fee and I was given the generic access codes.
