YOu know, that had not occurred to me.
Unfortunately, I'm interested in tax records from
thsi century, and not from the 18th century. How
would I get tax records for my Moore's - given I
don't know when they got there or when they left?
What is the fee, and what is the procedure, and
where do you send?
