That's not a crazy question at all! It takes a bit of monkeying around, but
easily relocate all of the patents onto your maps.
Open up your project containing your maps and the deed pool patents. Open
Edit menu and pick Select All. This will cause all of the patents to be
Hold down the left mouse button and drag all 500 patents until they are more
less where they belong on the maps. Release the mouse button. After
resulting locations, repeat as necessary to fine tune the locations.
The Brunswick file has some dummy deeds that represent the county lines. If
your maps contain boundary maps just move the patents around until the dummy
lines match your boundary map lines.

Subject: [DMU] deed data pool downloads and merging
Here is a crazy question. I've recently downloaded the Brunswick
and when I merged it with my Brunswick base maps the two did not
one-to-one. In other words, the deed data pool is off set and not on top
the base maps. Is there a way to merge the download file onto the
and have them mesh perfectly?
