Abstract: This collection is comprised of cases pertaining to the adjustment of Crown lands acquired by the residents of Guam from the Spanish colonial administration toward the end of the nineteen century. The Spanish Mortgage Law of 1893, regulated the process to register private land holdings, through possessory information. The Provincial Board that was created for the purpose of administering the adjustment of lands was the overseen authority, later replaced by the land registrar during the American Administration. The American Naval Government of Guam fully implemented the Spanish mortgage Law of 1893.
Description: There are 697 records or cases. Documents are placed in Maylar© plastic and in acid free folders, housed in 50 boxes for a total of 24.5 linear feet. The collection is described to the folder level, included in the container list.
