As the first of eight Georgia land lotteries, the 1805 Land Lottery served as the operational model for those to follow and established districts and land lots as the foundational units of Georgia’s survey system (over the township, range, and section). The purpose of the book 1805 Georgia Land Lottery Fortunate Drawers and Grantees is to document the record of title transfer from the State of Georgia to an individual for each land lot distributed through the lottery process in 1805.
