Baltimore, MD 1998 stiff paper wrappers 53495|60383|69596|70017 in NE jacket Small 8vo. stiff paper wrappers. 56 pages. Third U.S. edition. This guide lists concisely the
location of all known printed and manuscript poll books in public repositories throughout England, Wales, and Scotland. Until 1872, when the secret ballot was introduced, voting was a public matter, and a record of just how people voted was frequently published. Going back to the 1690s, poll books list the names and parishes of the voters, often noting their occupations and voting qualifications, with their choice of candidate. Genealogists find these poll books indispensable because they identify individuals by parish, thus pointing the way to the location of other invaluable records.
