Residential Clues in Deeds

When reading that deed where your relative sold real property, pay close attention to where they acknowledged the deed to be their own true, lawful act. The text of the deed may (or may not) list where the resided when the deed was drawn up, but the acknowledgement will indicate where that acknowledgement was made.

And that can be a clue.

  1. Good one. In fact many legal documents state an "of" place and an "at" place and can raise as many questions as they answer. But they definitely are a ich source of data and clues.
