|When the Service...||...you will assign a number to the ownership using the following format...|
tract from the public domain of the United States
For example, acquiring public domain land from the Bureau of Land Management.
Land Management (1)
You must use the number 1 for Public Domain land.
tract from another Federal agency
For example, the U. S. Department of Agriculture transfers Tract #124 to the Service.
of Agriculture (124)
You must continue to use the same number that the transferring Federal agency assigned to the tract.
tract from a State
For example, acquiring land from Oregon.
|State of Oregon
You must use the number 2. If more than one State agency administers the land then additional State ownerships are shown as 2a, 2b, 2c, etc. on the map.
tract from a County, City or other units of local government
For example, acquiring land from Starr County.
You must begin with the number 3. On the map, number in order of the municipality's importance. For example, first number counties; then cities, towns, and villages; and then other local public bodies. When a single tract lies in more than one county, then you must designate each portion as a separate tract.
tract from a private ownership
For example, acquiring land from John Smith.
You must begin with the number 10 or the next number in sequence after the local government designations. You must number different private ownerships consecutively.
