introduction

           Tax records are available at both the state and local levels.  This type of record may include include:  (1) Poll Taxes where each head of the household paid a tax just for living in the area. This would be somewhat similar to income tax today. (2) Personal Property Taxes levied on things like cows and horses. These are good lists because not every person owned land, but they often owned at least a cow. (3) Real Property Taxes on land.   These resources help identify residency and frequently include the names of heads of households, ages, relationships, occupations, slaves, wealth, personal property, livestock, assessed valuations, acreage, and property locations.

Since tax records list the heads of households in particular areas at specific times, they often serve as substitutes for lost census records.  Tax records are usually very complete resources because they include eligible voters and every owner, male and female, of real estate and taxable personal property.  In additional to the aforementioned tax records we’ve included links to Voter Lists on this webpage.

     All of the records and databases listed below are FREE and can be accessed and searched without having to pay for a subscription.   We try not to list any sites that have only a few records for the purpose of getting you to a website that will charge a fee to actually see the record beyond just a name.
