    Could you please provide instruction on how to access BU’s list of Texas county personal property tax records for 1890 through 1910.
    In 2011 & ’12, my local library in Fredericksburg, TX borrowed several such films, after I went online to the BU site, & chose those of interest.
    I cannot presently recall exactly how to get back to that sector of your site, thus require instruction.
    Many thanks, Bob
