This CD indexes the details from the Commonwealth Electoral Rolls for electors registered in Queensland in 1941. The entries for the approximately 604,000 electors cover name, title, sex, place of living, occupation, roll number, subdivision and division. The index allows direct searching on name, place of living and the other details with QFHSdatasearch. The CD also includes maps showing the division boundaries which applied at the time.
The material on this CD is a unique source of public information on individuals. It covers all electors recorded in the rolls held in the National Archives of Australia and lists all the information recorded in the rolls. Enrolment and voting were compulsory, so Queenslanders from all walks of life are included. The 1941 roll covers the World War II period when many people were on the move and the information and maps are invaluable aids for placing them. Combining the range of information with the search specifications and sorting facilities in QFHSdatasearch (a generic interface designed and developed by QFHS for searching genealogy databases) can be especially useful for finding family groups, for example by specifying a surname and sorting on place of living within subdivision, then using the links between search results and the maps to show the division. The CD is the seventh in the QFHS CERQ series. The earlier ones for 1903, 1913, 1922, 1934, 1949 and 1959, have been extremely popular with family and other historical researchers, illustrating just how valuable these sources are.
