      General Land Office Records Web Site
      Reconnected in BLM-Eastern States

      The Bureau of Land Management-Eastern States announced that its
      General Land Office (GLO) Records Web site is now back on line at
      www.glorecords.blm.gov. Title companies, historians, genealogists,
      and other interested people can now once again obtain millions of
      historic land title records from the thirty Public Land States (those
      States not included in the original 13 Colonies), East and West,
      dating back to the 1780s. These fascinating and valuable records
      include homesteads, patents, military warrants, and railroad
      grants. To date more than 4.2 million records have been scanned and
      imaged since the project began in 1989. This Web site provides a
      wealth of historical data and literally tells the story of the
      settlement of the West.

      "The GLO Records Web site is one of the most popular Web sites at the
      Department of the Interior. The Web site offers customers the
      ability to easily research and query the GLO database by name, land
      description, and county, and view and print these historic documents
      from their homes or offices, saving them time and money," said
      BLM-Eastern States Director Mike Nedd.

      As the BLM completes its first round of Web site reconnections of
      State-specific information sites, the following other BLM State
      Office Web sites are also once again available on the
      Internet: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New
      Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. In addition, the BLM's Wild Horse and
      Burro Information site is also now available. The Bureau originally
      disconnected these sites so that site security could be improved.

      "We at BLM recognize the impact that this disconnection has had on
      our customers, and we thank them for their patience and understanding
      during this period. The last six months have posed challenges, but
      making sure that all constituents receive timely information about
      the agency's actions has been a priority for the entire agency," said
      Mike Nedd.

      The BLM is now concentrating on reconnecting sites that provide
      interactive non-Indian Trust data and services. Unfortunately, sites
      of this kind are more complex and time consuming to
      reconnect. Additional announcements will be made as other sites are
      reconnected.
