Are township plat maps indexed? Where to find the indexes?
Our family FH group is using lots of plat maps to locate family, seems this would be a very helpful indexing project.
Depending on the location, you may find what you need on the Bureau of Land Management website. It has been down a couple of days, but I'm sure it will be fixed shortly.
Some states also have their own websites.
Are you saying that the Bureau of Land Management has indexed each name? I’m looking for an search engine to look up names on place maps. Play maps are a wealth of names.
It appears that Bureau is still down but the purpose of Bureau states that it deals with public land. I am interested in private land.

You can search the FamilySearch Catalog to see what is available in plat maps. Perhaps you will find some indexed stuff. Here is how to search:
You can also search digital images to find digitized plat map indexes. Here is how:
Thanks I’ll try it.
