KENTUCKY TAX LISTS - PART 1

I started this series on a different list and never completed it, so I am beginning afresh. As we know, tax lists can be a valuable asset in our research. Where only the name of the head of household is shown, we can also find a general location of the land, how many men over 21, over 16, slaves, billiards tables, town lots, etc. is shown along with who had the land patented and entered. Sadly, unless the tax lists have been transcribed by some researcher, the originals are found only on microfilm and have to be ordered by the individual. Several organizations have this microfilm; they can be ordered from the Kentucky Department of Library and Archives in Frankfort for a price. Some major libraries also have the reels. Included with these is the Kentucky Historical Society in Frankfort. In 1973, the Microfilm Department there published lists of their holdings. If you’ve never researched at the KHS, you are missing a great resource.

So, for several posts, I am going to list, county by county, the tax lists held by the KHS. Again, the Department of Libraries and Archives (KDLA) and others might have some that the KHS doesn’t have. Some list a Commissioner’s Book or Assessor’s Book for certain years in lieu of tax records. There is also film labeled “Negro Books” for years after emancipation. I am showing only those years labeled tax records.
