About Georgia Tax Index, 1789-1799

Before this century, taxation was often based on property ownership. As a result of this, and other cultural constraints, most of those taxed were male landowners. This database reflects some of these realities in late 18th Century Georgia. Listing over 11,500 persons, this database is an index of tax records held by the state government. It reveals the name of the taxpayer, county and district of residence, and year of the taxation record. For those seeking ancestors from Georgia, this database can be a source of valuable information.
