June Issue

On page 10 of the June 2012 issue there is a feature that advertises a data base at Ancestry that is taken from Poll books and in partnership with the LMA. I'm struggling to find this on the Ancestry main database ~ any clues?

Thank you
Margaret

Hi Margaret,

Thanks very much for your message! Yes, it looks like there's been a bit of delay with Ancestry.co.uk adding this data to their website. I'll get in touch with them now to see what the situation is, and let you know as soon as I know more.

All the best,

Matt

Hi, I just wanted to say, thank you very much Matt for that last link! I couldn't get the link in the newsletter to work. I'm thrilled because I've just found my 3 x great grandfather in an 1869 poll book (actually am astonished that ANY of my ancestors were qualified to vote!). And I'm pleased by the way he voted too!!
