Please join us for our Fall Seminar, "Death and Taxes," an exploration of lesser-known record sources to enhance your genealogy research. Five programs presented online via Zoom over three days.
Session 1
Friday evening, November 10
5:00 PM  Judy Russell  "Polls, Personalty and Property – Making Sense of Tax Lists"
Somebody had to pay government’s bills, and they did it through the law by imposing taxes on polls, personal property and real property. The records of those taxes offer some of the best clues available to our ancestors, their families and their neighborhoods.
Session 2
Saturday morning, November 11
