About this project

The Valuation rolls describe the property, name the proprietors and tenants, and contain the annual rental value. Up until 1884 tenants with leases less than one year and a low rental value were omitted. This project spans the years 1857-1899.

The clear images and machine-produced records allow for easy keying. The project difficulty level is set as Average due to the number of records per image.
