Software to sort and map out old land deeds.

Question: I am looking for software to enter in many old colonial deeds from our town in New Hampshire.  Can you recommend a way to do this, or a software program?


Answer: When I have worked on transcribing Suffolk County Deeds for my hometown in Stoughton.  I simply transcribed them from scanned images from microfilm directly to Microsoft Word.  However you may want a way to plot and link adjoining land parcels.  If this is the case I would suggest Direct Line Software's product Deed Mapper. I have heard many genealogists rave about this software for doing town wide projects.  If you wish to find out more about it you can reach them online at:
