Land Records

Overlooked sources of genealogical data are land records (deeds, tax records, mortgages, etc.).In addition to indicating where an ancestor may have been living, they sometimes provide other clues through references to estates or name changes due to weddings.

Maps, like those above, can provide interesting information about houses and, in some cases like the 1905 Atlas, contain the names of owners.

Some research has been done in the Mill Hill neighborhood with selected deed data available for:

Clay Street
200 Block of Jackson Street
(Even Number Houses)
200 Block of Jackson Street
(Odd Number Houses)

100 Block of Mercer Street
200 Block of Mercer Street (Even Number Houses)
200 Block of Mercer Street (Odd Number Houses)

Tax records are available for most of the city in the form of oversized cards with tax and other information on the properties that date from the 1930ís and have notes in some cases through the 1960ís.Photos were also attached to the cards and copies are available through the Trenton Historical Societyís research service page.Most of the images for Mill Hill are available here:
