Im new to gis and im trying to make a map to show land ownership for a few organizations that own quite a bit in my area.

how would i go about making a new layer to show this?

The data i have is from a state deed database broken down to section-township-range

I do have a file that shows all the sections of land throughout my state and i can individually look up each piece of land but i need to make a map representing 1000s of acres but im not sure how to manipulate this

this is kind of what i am working with you can see i can obviously select individual plots of land, but my purpose is to represent larger areas. (many sections)
