Facts and Tips
When the head of the household is no longer listed, don’t assume he/she is dead. It’s possible that the former head of household is now living with one of the children.

Take the time to read a book about doing genealogy.

There are various types of deeds to property. The most common are the “warranty deed” which transfers property with assurance of good title and the “quitclaim deed” which transfers one person’s interest in the property without guarantee of good title.
