Dublin City's 1899 Electoral Roll makes online debut

Dublin Municipal voters’ lists for 1899 have been digitised and are now searchable on the free Dublin City Electoral Rolls database.

The database already held more than 400,000 records, all linked to scans of the original printed lists dating from 1908–1915. This addition of the 1899 data is the latest development in DCC's project to digitise all the Lists dating from 1898 to 1916 as a contribution to the Decade of Commemorations programme.

John Grenham MAGI is the chap who's had all the fun of producing the database and you can read about the trials and tribulations of the project on his A glory and a wonder blogpost here.
