Ottawa, May 26, 2011 - Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce the launch of an updated version of its finding aid to locate electoral districts in its federal voters' lists collection from 1935 to 1980. This updated version now provides for each of the 892 microfilm reels of the collection, the electoral year, the province, the exact name of the electoral district and the page numbers for each microfilm. This tool will facilitate the frequent consultation and use of the federal voters' lists collection by genealogists and family historians.
The finding aid can be accessed at the following address: www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-911.006-e.html
