We are excited to announce a new virtual volunteer opportunity to transcribe volumes from the Salt Lake City Tax Assessment Rolls! These volumes record the assessment of real and personal property and were used for taxing purposes.

A volunteer works on transcribing a document using his computer.

The Assessment Rolls from 1856 to 1892 are digitized and available online, but we would love to provide even more access to researchers with the addition of an index. This is where you come in! By using FromThePage, our online software for transcribing documents, you can index anytime, anywhere. All you need is a digital device with internet, the ability to read 19th century handwriting, and an interest in Utah history. We’re kicking off with a volume from 1877 and would love your help!
