Electoral rolls are the nearest thing Australians have to census records, and hence they are extremely important and useful for local, family and social historians.

This compendium contains the Commonwealth electoral rolls for all electoral divisions (excepting Adelaide) in South Australia in 1939 - over 5,300 pages. You will find the details of more than 250,000 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.

The five electoral divisions included are: Barker, Boothby, Grey, Hindmarsh, and Wakefield. Each division consists of a number of subdivisions, the number of which is quite variable across the various divisions. The locations of the subdivisions in each division are listed separately under the description for each of the divisions. Names of the voters are arranged alphabetically within each subdivision.

The following information is included for many (but not all) entries:

  • No. on Roll
  • Christian name and surname in full
  • Place of living
  • Occupation
  • Sex
  • Commonwealth Division, State Assembly District and the Subdivision

This CD contains high quality scanned images of the original rolls, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
