Description: The census taker came every ten years and often missed people. The tax collector came every year and seldom missed anyone. The Genealogist’s Guide to Researching Tax Records will give you the techniques to locate, read, and understand the valuable information in these annual records. Researching tax records, which date from the 1620s to the present day, can help you establish the location, real estate, personal possessions, economic status and perhaps even the occupations and family relationships of your ancestors. Learn how to find tax records, how to read these records and understand the information they provide. Chapters one and two explain techniques that will help you successfully research tax records. Subsequent chapters explain how to apply those techniques in researching head or poll taxes, real estate taxes, personal property taxes, federal taxes, inheritance taxes, and a variety of miscellaneous taxes. Tax records are especially helpful for the period before the first U.S. census in 1790 and for the period between 1880 and 1900. This is the most complete guide to researching tax records in print and includes examples from New England, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, and more. Appendices, bibliographies, and a subject index add to the value of this work.
