This CD indexes the details from the Commonwealth Electoral Roll of approximately 419,000 electors registered in Queensland in 1922. Entries cover name, title, sex, place of living, occupation, roll number, subdivision and division. The index allows direct searching on name, year and the other details with QFHSdatasearch.
This is an excellent starting point for researching families living in Queensland at the time, and 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. 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 polling place.
The 1922 electoral roll follows the major shifts caused by World War I. It was compiled after a redistribution of electorates and the CD includes maps showing the new Division boundaries. Enrolment was compulsory so Queenslanders from all walks of life are present in the index.
QFHSdatasearch, developed by the Queensland Family History Society, is a generic interface designed to search genealogy databases. This version features field oriented and keyword searches, Boolean selection, sorting and wildcard searches.
