    I have a 95 acre farm that was bought in several small tracts .
    All of the tracts have been surveyed but one 7 acre piece.
    My Question is.
    Is there anyone who could map these tracts out for me ?

    Your best bet would be to get the surveyor of record (who did the other tracts) to do it. It’s always easier and typically faster and cheaper to get a surveyor who already has knowledge of the land or adjoining tracts to do it. Which county?

    Those surveyors are dead and long gone. I just need the tracts plotted out on paper.
    In the past I have had Justice in Mt Sterling plot surveys out map size but they must be out of business . We have called them several times to set up a time to do this but they don't answer the phone. It has been two years since we had one plotted out with them.

    I have already found the maps you two are talking about . It shows the outer property line.
    This place was bought years ago by my wifes grandfather little piece at a time. One is 39 acres and a couple 2 and three acres and some others in different size acres .
    I am wanting each piece mapped out so I can put the pieces together to see where each piece lays inside the property.
    Like the 39 acres is the first / homeplace and I want to know where it lays in the puzzle.

    If it were me, I would have the whole thing surveyed, assuming they are contiguous.
    With the other surveys in hand, I imagine it wouldn't be terribly expensive.
    You have to be the owner of record of each parcel or they won't touch it.
    Of you just want a map showing everything, it might be worth reading along the chains, finding the points yourself, and plotting them on a map.
    Some smart phones are accurate within a few feet so you woild be close enough for a visual.

    The farm all lays together and the out side fence is good . The interior fence lines have changed . Each tract lays inside the mapped boundary.
    I am just wanting to know where each tract is located inside the boundary . Like where the 39 acres lays on this land . The deed has around 7 different tracts purchased at different times and then added in.
    If I plot each tract out on paper , then they should all fit together like a puzzle. We own 1/3 and possibly working on getting more of it.

    If you have a friend who is a realtor, I'd reach out to him. The real estate agents work with surveyors a lot and they can help get you on their calendar.

    I had a survey run on a tract of land a few years ago where I had bought three or four additional parcels of land that join property I had inherited. It was a pain to get a surveyor and it cost a lot more than I had expected....but it was worth it.

    The web site is onyx. It will give you the land boundary,which is under the owners name at the courthouse.

    I know the outside boundary . Just wanting to see how each piece purchased lays inside the boundary . PVA and ONYX only shows the outside as a whole.
    PVA and Onyx maps are not 100% correct. There are lots of farms/ land that are drawn wrong on those maps.

    It is like you draw a big square and then put 7 little squares inside the big square . Each little square has different dimensions ( Acres) and are different in sizes. I want to see just how each square fits inside the puzzle.
    Each piece is surveyed and the deed contains 7 different surveys add onto the deed.
    There is one 7 acre piece that is not surveyed with this deed.

    I'm a licensed land surveyor, but no longer practice, my license is in retired status. Your project would be easy to do if the other pieces have already been surveyed...just a matter of generating a new plot of each from the surveyed descriptions, stitching them together and overlaying on a google type aerial image or a usgs quad map. I would help you out, but I don't have access to the needed software outside of work, both they and the board of registration really frown on moonlighting.
