Land and tax records (Tanah dan kekayaan, pajak, perpajakan)

This record type includes deeds and land tenancy tax records, property assessments, estates and purchase agreements. They are used primarily to identify family relationships and to extend lineage beyond other existing records. Records exist from the 1650s during the Dutch colonial period to the present.

Generally these record contain land holders’ and renters’ names, taxes and rent paid, dates of deeds, residence, land descriptions, fathers’ names and sometimes names of several generations of ancestors; date and mode of land acquisition (from a parent or grandparent, by dowry, or division). Records are housed at the National Archives and municipal archives. Coverage of the recorded population is about 20%.
