Manch­ester elec­toral records digi­tised

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

A large col­lec­tion of Manch­ester elec­toral records has been added to find­my­past.co.uk. Re­leased as part of the web­site’s on­go­ing ‘Find­my­past Fri­day’ cam­paign, the col­lec­tion pro­vides names of all adults el­i­gi­ble to vote be­tween 1832 and 1900, as well as de­tails of the prop­erty they owned or rented that af­forded them that priv­i­lege. Al­though not yet search­able, the reg­is­ters – scanned from mi­cro­film held at Manch­ester Cen­tral Li­brary – can be browsed by place, year and type of elec­toral record.
