This latest TNA podcast looks at the operation of the land tax, redemption, and the work of the Land Tax Redemption Office and its surviving records in series IR 20 to IR 25. Mention is also made of surviving land tax returns in county record offices and archives.
Mark Pearsall, who has given many previous presentations in this series, conveys the information with a solid if not particularly entertaining delivery. He usually has the interests of family historians well in mind, so in this case indicates which record series are likely and unlikely to have information of interest to the family historian.
