How to find tax records? #general

My experience is that these tax records are in archives (if they exist at all) in the countries from which your ancestor came.  I think there are some in Jewishgen's records from those regions, but most seem to be accessible only if you have someone helping you search in those archives.  Unless you have a friend or relative who will search at not cost to you, this usually means paying for assistance.  Again, this was my experience.

Brianna, I have LIPSHITS in my family tree, too.  If your LIPSHITS family is from the Vitebsk region, I would love to talk with you privately to see if we can uncover a relationship.

Hello,
I have read some of your posts where many of you reference learning about your family's occupations via reading tax records. Where does a person find tax records from the old country? (Belarus, Minsk, Mogilev, Kozelets, Ukraine, Yasi, etc.)
