During this 2-day course, you will learn techniques and best practices to efficiently store, edit, and ensure the accuracy of land-records data. Using the ArcGIS parcel fabric and Local Government Information Model, you will apply recommended workflows to perform and automate many common parcel-editing tasks.
Here are a few selected resources you may find helpful
Access various resources or participate in an online forum about land records and the parcel fabric
Definitely join the MeetupI
In addition to the live meetings, joining the meetup gives you access to these resources.

Parcel Fabric Add-ins
Split lines at inflection points and create circular arcs
Visualize quality indicators on parcel fabric data, and use tools to assess and improve the quality of parcel fabric data
Add angles as deflections from the previous line's bearing
Delete groups of parcel fabric records based on various criteria
Apply and fix history date fields for parcel fabrics
View and change extended parcel fabric properties
Work with duplicate plans and parcels that have been orphaned from their plan
Sample code for third party developers (These tools are not "production ready")
Parcel Fabric Geoprocessing Tools
Geoprocessing tools and functions that come with a standard ArcMap install
ArcMap comes standard with a toolbox called Parcel Fabric Tools. This toolbox is not available in ArcGIS Pro, nor is ArcGIS Pro able to edit ArcMap parcel fabrics. From ArcMap, you can also import a module called Fabric that includes several functions that are useful for working with parcel fabrics.
Parcel Fabric Geoprocessing Tools toolbox download
An Esri Supported toolbox containing various Python scripts and geoprocessing tools for preparing data for parcel fabric loading, for adjusting fabric data, for exporting data and reporting on parcels, and for doing field calculations.
Other parcel fabric tools
Calculate the Hide field to remove duplicate labels and and annotations on parcel lines
Calculate the line type to match parcel type
Create report from selected parcels in the parcel fabric
Export control points from the parcel fabric to a table
Format parcel names in the CAMRA As/400 format (Modify python script for other formats)
Using Attribute Assistant to automatically assign attributes using predefined methods (e.g. assign unique IDs; calculate areas; validate using a lookup table)

Least Squares Adjustment
The parcel fabric adjustment is a least-squares adjustment that is run on a selection of parcels to incrementally improve the positional accuracy of the parcel corner points. While COGO dimensions accurately define the shape of a parcel, a parcel fabric adjustment with survey control points accurately defines the spatial location of a parcel.

You may want to try out a free stand-alone app called Parcel Drafter, and it provides a simple interface in a stand-alone app.
The idea is that a data entry person can get up and running quickly with the simple Parcel Drafter user interface. Then a more experienced technician incorporates the new data into the fabric.
Community Parcels is a configuration of ArcGIS that helps communities (states, counties, emergency operations centers, and so on) aggregate parcel information from authoritative sources and use this information to facilitate valuation, emergency response, permitting, land use and other related workflows.
