This Land Records Meetup was the second meetup in a serie dedicated to the US Public Land Survey System (PLSS).

There are many rules for section subdivision. The familiar halving and quartering has been applied in many instances when more nuanced division including government lots, protraction blocks, and tracts are required to allocate the divisions correctly.
