Is there either/or a citation, source, reference template for colonial tax and tithable lists. Or perhaps something similar to what EE censusf displays?

Thanks.

There is not a template for that.

I often refer to this page [link] as a rough guide on citations for a wide variety of record types.

There is a 'complete' (and complicated) example given on the Evidence Explained site of citing a tax roll:

Madison County, Mississippi, Tax Rolls, 1829–1842, unpaginated entries arranged chronologically, all years read for entries relating to Vick, Green, and Anders; consulted as “Mississippi, State Archives, Various Records, 1820–1951,” FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1919687 : accessed 4 September 2014), path: Browse > Madison > County tax rolls; citing MDAH boxes 3717 and 3445.

Rob,

Thank you for the links. The Evidence Explained link is very detailed about citation/source. But it's written in an easy to understand way. That's a bookmark!

It sometimes boggles the mind at how in depth what one might call a simple citation can be. One could certainly spend an equal amount of time between preparing citations and the actual research. I had never thought of it as being a layered object and now that I see it that light, it makes perfect sense.

Thanks again.
