I keep telling myself I’m going to buckle down and learn more about the ins/outs, and capabilities of the OCCE Web site. I’ve used it many times, but feel I’m only scratching the surface. The specific queston at the moment is that I was wondering if it is possible to tell the current lease status of a particular section or area, with dates and that sort of thing. The way these leases operate, who holds them, and for how long has always been a bit or a mystery to me.
The better place to look is www.okcountyrecords.com . Garvin goes back quite a ways. You can search on name, section, etc.
