Quebec and Eastern Quebec Poll Books 1814-1841

Another database has been added at the Quebec Archives BAnQ website. This one is is Poll Books of Quebec and the Eastern Quebec Region 1814-1841

This database had me entering all the names I could think of to see what would turn up.

Lucky for me Robert Jeffery appeared in 1829 and clicking his name the screen dropped down to show these details:

I know this is my ancestor as he was a stone mason working in Quebec City. Let’s hope more of these types of records continue to appear at the Archives in Quebec.

Tip – to translate the pages at the Quebec Archives use Google Chrome as your browser, the link will give you more information.

    Thanks for this! I am finding my Eastern Township people in the books, proof positive they were there as early as 1832!
    I will have to learn more about voting, as in the 1832 Poll Book a Mr Anderson objected … Objected to my ancestor being able to vote?

      How did you get the page to display in English (as shown in your screenshot)? When I click the English button in upper right corner, I get a message saying the page is not available on English.

        I use Google as my browser and have it set to translate the pages to English.
