Everyone knows that the Federal Census Schedules are an excellent source of genealogical information. Unfortunately the Virginia Censuses for 1790 and 1800 are lost and can never be replaced. But the early tax records of the Virginian counties still survive and list all individuals charged with a tax. They may also contain names of young men who were tithable, or taxable, much like a male dependent of a household. Names of recently deceased individuals whose property was still in estate are also listed. There are many clues in tax lists that suggest family relationships that can not be found in the early censuses. Therefore these tax lists can be used as an alternative census for the missing 1790 and 1800 Federal Censuses of Virginia.

Here you will find FREE online images and indexes of the Virginia Tax Lists (Land and/or Personal Property Tax Lists) for each of the individual counties and cities that would have been included in the Federal Censuses. These tax list images and indexes are used to reconstruct the 1790 and 1800 censuses. The years of "1790" and "1800" are considered an approximate year. In some cases the actual year 1790 or 1800 tax list was very hard to read on the microfilm so we went up or down a couple of years to find better quality images.

As a BONUS we have added a new section for the missing Virginia counties of the 1810 Federal Census. This Federal Census is missing 18 Virginia counties. The tax lists are an excellent substitute for these missing counties.

Each list will be indexed as time permits. We are constantly gathering tax lists and will post updates as needed. If you do not find your particular tax list here today it may be here tomorrow.
