HALSEY / HOLSEY -- Chicago Voter Registration, 1888-1892

Source: Ancestry.com

~~~~~~~~~

Description:
Original voter registration lists were thought to be unavailable for Chicago and Cook County. Most of the old lists were supposed to be either destroyed or in warehouses, inaccessible to the public. However, in the late 1980s an amateur genealogist found 20 ledgers in the back room of the Voter Registration department at the County Building. Recorded in these ledgers were several hundred thousand voters for the years 1888, 1890, and 1892, covering the city of Chicago and some other areas within Cook County, Illinois. The 1888 index covered the city of Chicago as well as the city of Lake View, town of lake, and the village of Hyde Park. These municipalities became part of the city of Chicago on 15 July 1889. The time period covered is very important because the 1890 federal census is not available, thus we have included this database in our 1890 Census Substitute Collection.
