Owning New Jersey author talk

What things can a deed or title tell you?  Stories to help us know history can be found in these documents.  Educator, lecturer and title researcher Joseph A. Grabas has examined over 100,000 land titles in five states and all 21 counties in New Jersey. While New Jersey’s land records and deeds are unlikely sources for a thrilling tale, they reveal some little-known and fascinating history. The archives hide bizarre and mysterious tales, as well as heroes, like the freed African Americans who fought for their right to own their piece of the state.
