Guam - After years of waiting, original Tiyan landowners may finally receive the deeds to FAA and Marbo property as mandated in Public Law 30-158.  Landowners spokesperson Benny Crawford says the bulk of the 72 estate owners have their paperwork in order, which means the deeds could be ready in a few weeks.

"Up 'til now we have had volunteers putting all the peoples' estates in order, making sure all their documents are in order all the title search and all the documents that they need to get their deeds those are in order," said Crawford.  "So tomorrow's discussion would have to do with 'Are we really in place?', so with in two weeks we start issuing out deeds."

Landowners will receive property proportional to what was taken from them and Crawford is hopeful all the deeds will be divvied up by the end of the year.  Title hearings are expected to get underway in two weeks but the Ancestral Lands Commission meets on Wednesday at 2pm.
