Hendren Plat Map Project
Because there is so little genealogical data available for sparsely populated townships, we would like to provide the information offered by plat maps. Our first two sets were contributed by Alice Braun. We need volunteers to transcribe each map so the surnames can be indexed on our search engines. If you can help by typing this information for us or have maps to contribute to the project, please contact George Plautz concerning the township and year you would like to transcribe. Because of copyright laws, we will not be able to display the actual maps which were produced after 1926 unless you are able to obtain permission for us to do so.
The format for gleaning the information is simply to put the Township at the top and then record the source for the information along with the year of publication. This should then be followed by a breakdown of the sections within the township. Record year being transcribed and the names of the property owners under each section. Here is an example for the Beaver Township Plat Maps of 1893, 1930, 1997 & 2000 for sections 1, 2 & 3.
