Virginia Tax Lists

Unfortunately for genealogical researchers, the 1790 and 1800 censuses of Virginia were lost forever. The good news is, though, that through the use of tax records that still exist 'substitute census' information can be utilized to locate individuals and families in those critical years. Now available FREE online are the Land Tax lists and Personal Property Tax lists for each of the individual counties and cities in Virginia. A work in progress, tax lists updates are still being made as needed, so if you don't find your particular tax list on your first visit check back as eventually it will be added to the database.
