I'm considering the purchase of Deedmapper but would like to first ask
some users if it will do what I want. Can you help me?
I own an old house that goes back to farmland in 1836 and earlier. It is
now a city lot which has been enlarged over the years to about an
acre with a substantial house on it. It didn't start out that way.
I would like to trace the various property changes made to the place to
what it is today using overlays via Adobe layers software or even this
deedmapper thing in different colors. I have a stack of paper work
which has me totally befuddled as to who did what when and why. I
need to see this graphically.
I typed up in verbatim mode a more recent deed from 1965 and
wonder if this verbiage will produce a map of the property with
deepmapper? How do streets get into the picture if they are
referenced? Also what is meant by the various numbers such 5- ? Is
that feet without inches? Here's the text:
BEGINNING AT A POINT in the Center line of Warren Street distant
407.58 feet Western from the center line of Farnum Street; thence
1- in a Southwesterly direction along the Western property line of
Mario Farias, South 4 degrees 50 minutes Wast, 225 feet to a stake;
thence 2- in a southeasterly direction along the Southerly line of Mario
Farias extended, South 85 degrees 10 minutes East, 35 feet to a
stake; thence 3- in a Southwesterly direction South 4 degrees 50
minutes West, 50 foot to a stake corner to Edward S. Becker and
Christopher A. Probasco; thence 4- in a Northwesterly direction along
said Probasco, North 85 degrees 10 minutes West 55 feet to a stake
corner to Christopher A. Probasco and Douglas C. Peake; then
ce 5- in a northeasterly direction and along said Peake's line, North 4
degrees 50 minutes East, 40.50 feet to a stake set for corner of
Douglas C. Peake, also in the Southerly property line of Bessie B.
Levin; thence 6- In a northwesterly direction along the aforementioned
line and also Douglas C. Peake and E. Coates, North 86 degrees 02
minutes 30 seconds West, 113.68 feet to a fence corner, being the
Southwest corner of Bessie B. Levin property; thence 7- in a
northeasterly direction along the Easterly line of Charles W. Fink,
North 4 degrees 50 minutes East, 236.24 feet to a point in the
center line of Warren Street; thence 8- in a Southeasterly direction
along the center line of Warren Street, South 85 degrees 10 minutes
East, 133.67 feet to a point, the point or place of beginning.
How much trouble is it to produce a property outline using this data?
Thanks for any help with this.
