This collection comprises 3 bound, handwritten title abstracts,
prepared by the Abstract and Title Insurance Company of Los Angeles, containing
transcriptions of documents, dating back as early as 1868. The transcriptions are from
original documents such as deeds, leases, tax assessments, and court cases with accompanying
hand-drawn maps for properties that were part of Rancho Boca de la Playa and Rancho Santiago
de Santa Ana presently part of Orange County, California. The fourth document is an unbound
typescript copy of an 1887 title abstract for a property formerly known as the Colima Tract
on the Rancho Santa Gertrudis, and was prepared by the firm of Pendleton and Williams.
