A person shall be deemed to have an unbroken chain of title when the official public records disclose a conveyance or other title transaction, of record not less than 25 years at the time the marketability is to be determined, which purports to create an interest in land, either in the person claiming the interest or in some other person from whom, by one or more conveyances or other title transactions of record, the purported interest has become vested in the person claiming the interest and, in either case, with nothing appearing of record purporting to divest the claimant of the interest.
