A: Not sure of your question. But if you feel it is important, hire a competent attorney to run a Title Search for at least 225 years. It will involve alot of inexact legal descriptions and questionable derivations of title. I suggest you start with a search back about 50 years to start with, as that will probably tell you the exact status of your Family's Title.
