How to use the records
These latest residential records have been linked to detailed OS maps which allows the researcher to pinpoint an ancestors’ property on maps that go down to plot level. These land tax records were originally collected by the Inland Revenue’s Valuation Office and are sourced from The National Archives IR58 records.
Searchable by name or keywords using TheGenealogist’s Master Search, or by selecting a pin from the map displayed inside the Map Explorer™, this tool gives you the ability to switch between georeferenced modern and historic maps in order to gain a better understanding of the neighbourhood in which ancestors from 1910 had lived or worked and to see how it may have changed in the intervening period.
