New York Land Records, 1630-1975 at FamilySearch

FamilySearch recently placed online digital images of land and property records for all counties in the State of New York with the exception of Queens, Nassau and Franklin counties. The collection is arranged by county but there is no search capability. It is "browse-able" only. Fortunately, the indexes have been digitized as well.

In a number of past posts I have placed images of deeds and conveyances online. You can now access better quality images of the same documents at the FamilySearch website. Individual  images can be saved and downloaded to your own computer. As an example, here is a downloaded copy of page 1 from Lib. A of Kings County Conveyances.

Kings Co. Conveyances Lib. A, p. 1
This new collection will save on a lot of trips to the local Family History Center. And access is free.
