Dublin City Electoral Rolls 1908

Electoral Rolls 1908Dublin City Electoral Rolls 1908 is a Dublin City Council project. It is the first part of a wider project to digitise all of the Dublin City Council Electoral Rolls 1898-1916 for inclusion in a forthcoming database connected to literary Dublin and to Centenary Commemorations for 1913-1916. The database is fully searchable and is useful for family history, local history and social history.

Right: Prior to digitisation, the Electoral Rolls needed to be rebound. This image shows the Rolls before and after the rebinding process. (Click to view larger image)
