Well I took the plunge and ordered Reuben Miner's land entry case file. I had located the deed papers on the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) site and it diected me to the National Archives site. If I understand right, I should get Reuben's application records and the records that tell what he did to improve the land. It's a leap of faith that will take up to 2 months to see what happens. If they find the records then it will cost $40.00, if they don't find anything the search is free. As I was looking at the form I couldn't tell exactly what was going to be included in the search. There was a place to put extra information. I put down that I wanted the land entry records, that I already had the deed from the BLM website. We'll see if I understood the information right.
