I love Google Books! There are great finds there for genealogists and for many other interests as well. Newsletter reader Barbara Ulus sent information about her latest find, one that will interest any genealogist with ancestors living in New York City in 1919. Barbara writes:
“I’ve come across a free book on Google, which you may or may not know of, that lists the name, address and political party of all voters in the boroughs of NYC for 1919. Seems to list many more people than I found searching on the census. I guess people didn’t trust giving info to the census takers but most men wanted to vote as soon as they were able to.”
The List of Enrolled Voters of the City of New York is a 484-page book available for free to everyone in the U.S. at http://goo.gl/OuWU8n. However, it may not be available in other countries due to copyright laws that keep Google from making all books available everyplace.
