Issue 5 discusses how J M. Trautvetter obtained the property he owned at his death. The analysis is straightfoward, there's not any metes and bounds descriptions in this article. The property acquisitions take place over a nearly fifty year period (1866-1914) in just one quarter section. This is not just an article for German or Illinois research as there's analysis and discussion that's applicable to other areas as well.
We'll see how chronologies are always important and why the dates of recording are not to be ignored.
Seeing again that deed records are not boring!
