California now joins the First Landowners Project

We've just added over 600,000 Californians to the First Landowners Project!

For the first time ANYWHERE, original California landowners are being mapped en masse. With this addition, nearly 7.7 Million original landowners now populate this single map!

Nowhere else can researchers of U.S. migration and frontier settlement learn so much in such a short period of time, and for such a small investment.

Want to quickly check-out a complete list of counties and states covered by this project? Just check out this 55-page PDF document with both a detailed explanation of the First Landowners Project and a county-by-county listing with totals of people and parcels mapped!

You can see where the California landowners were concentrated from the map below.
