The Latin maxim Via Trita, Via Tuta means the beaten path is the safe path. “The truth is, the moment we desert the old rules of interpretation, we are off of soundings, and deliver over the titles to lands to interminable doubts.”
Cleaveland v. Smith; 2 Story 278; 5 Fed. Cas. 1003 (Maine, 1842).

DEALING WITH ANCIENT TITLES

Ancient, in this sense, applies to those items from over one hundred years ago. Many of our boundaries owe their origin to ancient times during the early formation of the state, or before. In the past, laws were different, terminology was different, and surveying procedures were very different. When relying on ancient documents, handwriting and abbreviations can be difficult to decipher and may be misleading. This program contains a review of these issues, with suggestions on how to overcome their related obstacles.
