Massachusetts, City of Boston Voter Registers, 1857-1920
This collection includes voter registration records for men from 1857-1900, women from 1920-1940 and men from 1921-1940. The registers are not a comprehensive listing of all registered voters. The period 1857-1895 includes only naturalized males and for the period 1920-1940 other sets of registers were used to register voters. The collection has been divided into four series: Naturalized male voter indexes; Naturalized male voter registers; Naturalized and Native male voter registers; and Women voter registers. The fourth series is labeled "Women voters" because the books were initially used to register women in 1920 and are labeled as such. These volumes do include men after 1920.
