Boston Tax Records - how to determine the year - [Part G] [M3CG-MSP]
I have found that the tax records, on the right hand side, have a column for "****'d 1868 Page." [Assessed 1868 Page]. In this column they put the page number where the the tax payer was listed on the previous year.
This helps to know that the current record is of the year 1869. This is very helpful to indexes to know the year of the current record. I do not know if all the Boston tax records have that column.
