Property and Tax Records tell us where our acenstors lived and what they owned. They contain signatures of owners and witnesses that might give clues to relationships. Sometimes they even explain that the owners were selling land they inherited. Tax Records may even reveal that your ancestor owned a watch or a dog.

Godfrey Board member Al Fiacre will help us learn how to find these documents and how to understand them.

Participants will have time after the presentation to do research at the library. Come and see what you can find.

Genealogy Club is free to Godfrey Premium Members or $10 per session for all others.
