The Queensland Family History Society has been busy adding more data to their “Members Only” section. The latest addition added here is the Queensland Commonwealth Electoral Roll 1969. This has been available as a CD for some time, but now all QFHS Members have access to this data online from home, and it is one that you will not find online anywhere else (such as Findmypast, MyHeritage, FamilySearch or Ancestry). This database provides details of more than one million people in Queensland who were registered to vote in the 1969 elections. It lists all the information recorded in the rolls of National Archives of Australia: BP94/2 (Commonwealth Electoral Rolls for Queensland).
The Electoral Roll is a unique source of public information on individuals at the time. Enrolment and voting were compulsory for those aged 21 or older, so Queenslanders from all walks of life are included. Combining the range of information with the search and sorting facilities can be especially useful for finding family groups.
