This data set contains the electoral rolls for three separate years - 1939, 1941 & 1943 - for the following South Australian regions: Barker, Boothby, Grey, Hindmarsh & Wakefield.
Entries are arranged alphabetically within each subdivision. You will find the details of tens of thousands of voters who resided in South Australia at this time, and who were entitled (and registered) to vote. Importantly, the roll includes the names of many women qualified to vote for the election of members of the Commonwealth and State Assembly of South Australia.
Electoral rolls are the nearest thing Australians have to census records, and hence are extremely useful genealogy tools for local, family and social historians. They're one of the best ways to explore your family history and are essential in building a family tree.
