For the Year Beginning February 1st 1929, and ending January 31st, 1930


Poll Tax records can hold a lot of information when searching for ancestors. As an example I have put two people below to explain it.Mr.Anderson has been in Texas 40 of his 49 years therefore you would know that you need to look in a different state for his birth records, or to check census records. His parents mostlikely were in Wharton County also since he was only nine when he came here. We know from this tax record that Mr.Anderson was a Merchant, meaning he must have owned some kind of a store in El Campo in 1935.It is possible that photos exist of this place of business.

Mrs.Anderson has only been in the state for 12 years and in Wharton Co for 7 years. Since Mr.Anderson has been in Wharton County 40 years you know to look for a marriage certificate in Wharton County as they have probably only been married 7 or less years. Since they were in their 30's when they were married it is possible that either one or both have been married before, since people were married at a young age back then. Or he was a widower and needed someone to help with the survivng children.

You can also look for other Andersons to make a connection to this one. Tax records can be an avenue to further your search or atleast point you in the right direction. It is my hope that this record helps you in your search. Janet.
