Pre-Statehood Kentucky Tax Lists
Images for available pre-1792 county tax lists are posted for Bourbon, Fayette, Jefferson, Lincoln, Madison, and Mercer counties. Just sign in and click on the "Early Kentucky Tax Lists" link. Yes, a searchable index of surnames would be wonderful! If you can help make that happen, please send email to
