Indexing US, Massachusetts - Boston Tax Records, 1822-1918, Part G
As a reviewer sometimes I find that the first indexer of the Boston Tax records has been able to determine the year of the record. This is because there is a column to the right side which says "****'d ___(year). Page. It then gives the page number of the records of the previous year. I believe that this tells us the year when the property was last assessed/ taxed. This way if it says "****'d 1868. Page" we can assume that the current record is of 1869. Do others agree this is a valid way to determine the year of the batch being indexed? Thank you for your suggestions. David Putnam Jr.
