Stumper Detail

Question/Topic: I am looking for a contact name and number for who to obtain General Land Office plats for the state of Florida, referred to as GLOs. GLOs are plats of the Federal System of Rectangular Surveys. Each plat contains a Township, which consists of 36 sections. The plat also includes the dimensions of each section including bearings and lengths of section lines, quarter section lines and government lots. Accurate plots of sectionalized lands can be accomplished by using GLO plats. Any information would be greatly appreciated. 
Answer/Pointer: The Bureau of Land Management, Eastern States office, has a Web site at: The page explains how to get the plat maps.
