SHAWANO COUNTY LAND & PROPERTY RECORDS
If your surname is listed at the bottom of this page (or you arrived here through the search engine), click on the link that matches the first letter of the surname & you'll go to the LAND PATENT (HOMESTEAD) records in Shawano County online index. 

The Wisconsin Land Patents Database (1820-1908 ) contains the following information for each land transaction: date, location (township, range, section), name of person the land was patented to, county, date, and the patent document identification number.  Using this index, you can easily locate the original files at the Bureau of Land Management.  The index provides you with the full name and date.

Or, if you would like to go directly to the Bureau of Land Management
web site and view a copy of the original document.

The document can be saved to disk, printed out, or merely viewed. Certified 
copies of the document can be ordered on their web site as well.

The National Archives will also send you a copy of the patent file for $10 from 
at the following address:

Reference Branch (Lands)
National Archives
Washington, DC 20408
(202) 501-5428 

You need to submit your request on a copy of Form 84. To get the form, send
an e-mail message to 

inquire@nara.gov

In the body of the message, be sure to ask for Form 84 "Order for Copies of 
Land Entry Files", tell them how many copies you want (get at least 2, in case
you make a mistake) and give your name and snail address so they can send you the forms.

(Or you can send a snail mail letter to above address). Sending by e-mail takes
less than a week; by snail mail both ways takes about 2 weeks.
