HISTORICAL CLARK COUNTY RECORDS AT REST
In 2017, Clark County Genealogical Society received a Historical Records Preservation grant from
Clark County to digitize and transcribe the two tax ledgers. The specific purpose was to digitize
and transcribe the two original tax ledgers. They are of particular importance as the destruction
of the 1890 Federal Census created a 20-year information gap for genealogical research. This project
has now been completed in partnership with the Clark County History Museum and Washington State
University, Vancouver. It is now available for public access at
The ledgers will become part of the collection preserved and administered by the Washington State Archives.
