"The composite '1787 Census of Virginia' - made up of the tax lists of all the counties - is an invaluable tool in locating early Virginia ancestors. The individual county lists ... goes further than the composite, however. The lists are given twice in the individual county books - once in the original order, than again rearranged by the date on which the commissioner had visited each taxpayer. This second list makes it possible to tell who the neighbors were since it appears evident that the commissioner visited those living in the same vicinity on the same day. It would also seem likely that he stayed at the residence of one of the persons he visited and continued in the neighborhood the next day. However, be careful in assuming this." -- Pref.

Some booklets contain tax lists and petitions for years other than 1787. Some counties are now in West Virginia and Kentucky.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
