Every Jurisdiction in the Country has a method of identifying each parcel of land.
APN or Assessors Parcel Number. Usually this information is at a county level.
The number is broken down into groupings of digits. The First set is the Book, the Second set is the Page Number, The Third set is the Tract or subdivision, the Fourth set is the actual lot number. If you go to the Assessors office you can actually look at these books but many are now on line. If you contact the Assessors office they may be able to direct you to their website.

It is the number the county assigns for taxation and identification purposes. This number can change based upon development or parcel map designations. Some cases old properties have been changed for the new categorical system and difficult to find, like old farm properties in the middle of a developed area.
