Known Issues

Question #1: The Images for Angelina County, 1946 are too faint and difficult to read. Can we get better images?
Answer #1: Some of the images in this collection are difficult to read. This is due to the original scanning of the documents which was done prior to current technologies which allow for improvement of images after the original scanning is complete.

Question #2: There is no listing for Bell County for the year 1859. Are there any records for this year and county?
Answer #2: The images for Bell County for the year 1859 can be found under Blanco County, 1859. Images 1-11 are from Blanco County, images 12-55 are from Bell County.

Question #3: The records in the browse points Texas, County Tax Rolls, 1846-1910 > Collin county, Precinct 1 and Precinct 2 are confusing. Can you clarify what is found there?

Precinct 1-1892 holds images from precincts 1-8 A-G
1893 holds images from precincts 1-8 A-H
