Wonder if you have a "quit claim" deed. You will find the word "quit claim
my interest..." or words to that effect somewhere in the body of the deed. Another
tipoff is that the consideration will be for a nominal amount--- $1.00 is typical. This is
commonly used to divide property among heirs in a estate settlement as well as to clear

PS I have another question. Does deeding a property back and forth
make any sense to anyone. It seems that in 1950 my place was sold
(deeded) and bought right back again on the same date and time.
Doesn't make a bit of sense to me as to why anyone would do that.
Fred, That is a very good question. I have the same situation in some of my
genealogical data. I am looking forward to the answer.
