This CD indexes the details from the Commonwealth Electoral Roll for all electors registered in Queensland in 1949. The entries for over 756,000 electors cover name, title, sex, place of living, occupation, roll number, polling place and division. The index allows direct searching on name, year and the other details with QFHSdatasearch.
The material on this CD is an excellent source of public information on individuals. It covers all electors recorded in the rolls held in the National Archives of Australia (i.e. all registered electors for Queensland except for those who would have been listed in the unavailable supplementary rolls for Fisher Division) and lists all the information recorded in the rolls.
Enrolment and voting were compulsory, so Queenslanders from all walks of life are included. The 1949 roll was compiled after a redistribution of electorates and the CD includes maps showing the new Division boundaries. Combining the range of information with the search specifications and sorting facilities in QFHSdatasearch can be particularly useful for locating family groups, for example by specifying a surname and sorting on place of living within subdivision.
QFHSdatasearch is a generic interface designed to search genealogy databases and developed by the Queensland Family History Society Inc. This version features field oriented and keyword searches, Boolean selection, sorting, wildcard searches and, when applicable, links between search results and images held in pdf files of the source records.
