    The State Archives has a set of the original Kansas land grant surveys, including the plat maps and field notes, and surveys of Indian lands. These are part of the records of the United States' Surveyor General of Kansas and Nebraska. These records do not show the land owners' name. A few of these plat maps have been digitized for Kansas Memory. Variables include the number of acres awarded to the warrant recipient, the conflict in which the veteran served, his wartime military rank, his state of residence, the public land office where the warrant was located, the year the warrant was issued, and the type of military unit in which the veteran served.
