 “Finding a North Carolina Revolutionary War Ancestor”

Live Presentation: 21 November 2014, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
(Free Viewing Period of the recorded webinar: 5-7 December 2014)

North Carolinians were active participants in the Revolutionary War, providing men, supplies, and support for the revolutionary cause. Records were created before, during, and after the war. There is more to research than compiled military service records and pension application files, such as public claims, pension ledgers, and pension payment vouchers. Records are found in the National Archives, Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, the State Library and Archives, and in some unexpected places. Clues to information on ancestors and descendants can be found in the lineage application papers of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Sons of the American Revolution.

Discover the variety of North Carolina tax records, and how they can tell you more than the amount due. Learn where they are located, and when to look at alternate sources for information.

Taxation in the Americas began within the colonies for the crown. By the time, the constitution was written in 1787, all colonies were taxing citizens on property, capitation (head), livestock, and other properties. The constitution gave specific authority to the state to levy and collect taxes. For purposes of our discussion, we will focus on the levy on people (poll tax), property and other personalty (personal property).
