Register for Webinar Wednesday - Using Voting and Election Records to Find Your Ancestor by Melissa Barker
Our ancestors voted in local, state and federal government elections. Many of our local, state and national archives, libraries and genealogical societies have election and voting records that could help genealogists find their ancestors. These records could include the polling places where your ancestor voted and even your ancestor's signature.
