Original lines, conditional lines, etc. 0 Farris Cadle, Inc. I've posed this question before and have done a lot of checking, but have not found an answer.  In deed descriptions in extreme north Georgia and in states north of there, the terms "original line," "conditional line," "original corner," and "conditional corner," are often used.  From the context, an original line is a boundary created by the original public land survey, such as a land lot line.  An original corner is a corner established by the original public land survey, such as a land lot corner.  A conditional line is a boundary that was created later that is not a boundary created by the original public land survey.  A conditional corner is a property corner that was created later that is not a corner established by the original public land survey.  My question is what is the derivation of the term "conditional" in this context?  Why is it applied in this type of situation? I've seen these terms used only in deeds in the part of Georgia generally north of Atlanta, and in Tennessee and Kentucky, and they are fairly common in those areas.  I've never seen them used in deeds south of that area.  I've wondered why they caught on there and not in other areas? Thanks.

Records of Donald Milligan? 1 M. Paulk Mitch, I knew Don and I believe any records he had would reside with the companies he worked for/with during his career. This would include Lewis Heard (Heard-Prince), Joe Rowan/Southern (try Heard-Prince) and Glen Mathis, Mathis Surveying.He also worked for a time with Ken Nutt at Perimeter Surveying, but I think that was before he was licensed. At the time of his passing in the late 1990, he lived in Eagles Landing in Stockbridge. I hope this helps.

Decline in number of surveyors 7 Farris Cadle, Inc. I'm a free market guy; so I believe supply and demand will alleviate many of the salary and job availability issues listed previously. It's already starting to happen, and employers like myself are having a hard time finding qualified employees as the economy gains momentum.That said, there is no doubt the surveying profession is at a crossroads and among other things, needs to do a much better job attracting young people and college graduates. Neither of my own sons has any interest in surveying as a career. One is working on his four year degree in computer science, the other is a business major and wants to obtain an MBA. The problem starts early. Perhaps even in elementary school. Math, science, engineering, surveying,.....none of these endeavors are viewed as glamorous, and surveying in particular comes up short when competing against most engineering disciplines. I've done a lot of presentations at High School career days, but that's a drop in the bucket compared to the outreach efforts needed.

Problems recording plats of existing property even with statement 4 E. Cowherd There is a Mr. Doug Hawkins listed as a registered surveyor in Georgia (although his current license status is lapsed). Out of professional courtesy you should contact him and make him aware of the law. Be sure to give him the statute for his reference. I'm confident as a fellow professional he has no intent of breaking the law.

Plat Law & GMDs 0 L. Brown Was the omission of showing the GMDs in the Plat Law on purpose? I cannot imagine a good reason for not showing the GMD in the Headright Grant section of the state. Maybe I am missing something.

Need DOT contact info 0 Farris Cadle, Inc. I need a copy of the deed for the right of way of U.S. Highway 17, also known as Georgia Highway 303, in Brunswick, immediately northeastward of the Turtle River.  I am unable to find it in the courthouse.  I've tried to contact the DOT to find out when this right of way was acquired, and other info about it, but all I get is recordings to leave a message and they will get back in touch, which I do, and they don't call back.  Does anyone have contact info for someone at the DOT in Atlanta who can provide this information and will respond?  Thanks in advance.

Topcon DS 205 0 L. Atkinson I purchased a new Topcon instrument about a year ago and in December while running a traverse the angle spread between direct and reverse started widening out of and acceptable range. The instrument was taken back to the shop for calibration and has yet to be fixed, it was returned to me in February and when I set it up or tried to, I couldn't get it level or couldn't be certain it was over the point. It was returned to the shop, where it was sent to Kansas to have the manufacture check it. Since then its been phone tag and no instrument! Has anyone else experienced this level of difficulty with this instrument?

Update on Surveying Program Deactivation at Middle Georgia State College 2 R. Purcell What are the current options available for meeting the state's minimum education requirements? At one time Southern Poly had a certificate program and there was at least one correspondence program that met state requirements.

PROFESSIONALISM 1 T. Scarborough, RLS Professional Liability insurance agents tell us to never give a guarantee or a warranty. However, it appears that we have many surveyors so scare of liability that they come up with statements that make little if any sense and really do not protect them. Our best protection from liability is to exercise the Standard of Care required by our profession. Before releasing a survey, we should believe that we have analyzed all available evidence and that in our opinion our representation of the evidence is correct. This is after all the reason the Public needs Land Surveyors. Of course, even giving your best effort will not protect us from all liability any more than wearing a seat belt and driving carefully will avoid all wrecks. Life is just too short to worry about possible liability more than providing quality services to our clients. After all, babies will cry, heathens will rage and lawyers will sue. The statement is at best unprofessional.
