Great Register of voters - 1896

This is just a small sample copied from the above register at Searls Historical Library in Nevada City. The actual records can be viewed in person at the library—-but because of the size of the book, they cannot be photocopied. Great Registers are now avaiable at Family Search at the LDS Family History Web Site. Microfilm of these records can be viewed and ordered from the California State Library. (See online catalog.)
