Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEWS -

The Pub­lic Record Of­fice of North­ern Ire­land (PRONI) has pub­lished lists of ab­sent vot­ers in the coun­ties of Ar­magh and Derry for free on its web­site. The lists were com­piled so that those en­gaged in war ser­vice could vote in the 1918 elec­tion. PRONI has digi­tised the orig­i­nal lists, which in­clude the ab­sent vot­ers’ ser­vice num­bers, ranks and reg­i­ments, and cre­ated search­able spread­sheets. The 3,500 names for Ar­magh are avail­able at bit.ly/ ab­sent-ar­magh, and the 4,500 for Derry are at bit.ly/ab­sent-derry.
