Process of Acquiring Land (from phmc.pa.gov) 1) Application - Request for a warrant to have a survey made. 2) Warrant - Certificate authorizing a survey of a tract of land; initiates title of a property and provides the basis for legal settlement, but does not convey all rights to the property. A number of Franklin County warrants are available in this folder. 3) Survey - Sketch of boundaries of tract of land with exact determination of total acrerage. A number of Franklin County Rough Draft surveys are available in this folder. The survey books are available at the Franklin County Archives. 4) Return - Verbal description of property boundaries; function is similar to that of a patent; internal document sent from the Surveyor General to the Secretary of the Land Office. 5) Patent - Final, official deed from the Penns or the Commonwealth, which conveys title and all rights to the private owner.
