NORTHERN TERRITORY ELECTORAL ROLL 1895, 1906, 1922, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1931, 1934, 1937, 1940

Electoral rolls are the nearest thing Australians have to census records, and hence are extremely important genealogy tools for local, family and social historians exploring ancestry. And they're an absolute must for anyone building their family tree!

These particular rolls may help to trace those who made the Northern Territory their home. During this period, the region was notorious for those looking to escape their responsibilities or to remain elusive to family.

Included are rolls from ten different years: 1895, 1906, 1922, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1931, 1934, 1937, 1940

They cover Alice Springs, Anthony Lagoon, Arltunga, Barrow Creek, Borroloola, Burrundie, Charlotte Waters, Daly River Mission Station, Daly Waters, Eveleen, Fountain Head, Howley, Katherine, Maude Creek, Palmerston, Pine Creek, Powell Creek, Tennant's Creek, Union, Warnardo.

The following information may be recorded for each entry:
• First name

The listings may also provide information on how long the individual had been in Australia (if coming from elsewhere).
