This series of books contains an interesting history of land ownership in the 1700s, pre-dating most surviving church books. While there is little to be observed for the common people at the time, these pages reveal more about the noble families who owned the land and their children who inherited it.

To give an idea of how thick these books are, here is a picture of the three land books on the same cart as a Grundbuch. The size is noticeably larger and it covers the regions of what would later become the Kreise Kolberg-Körlin, Köslin, and Büblitz. For more information on this earlier Kreis, read our page about Kreis Fürstenthum Cammin, which was also known more generally as Kreis Fürstenthum.

The pages herein detail both titles of possession and payments.
