Ontario Voter's Lists 1867-1900 are now online. I took a
few minutes to search them this morning for my own
ancestors, and it's well worth having a look.
Some years have information - name of voter, residence, and
whether the individual was an occupant, owner or tenant of
the home he was in. Even though it may seem basic, it helps
determine where and if an ancestor was living in those
Voter registers are valuable records to use as census
substitutes, since they will usually contain the names of
heads of households and other adults.
Although the title of this database is ONTARIO Voter's
List, I found over 500 names from Montreal Centre, Quebec
in the 1867 lists. I also found hundreds of women even
though the description of the database states that no women
are on these lists.
So that makes even more reason to search Ontario Voter's
Lists 1867-1900 - there ARE women on the list and there are
names from Quebec as well as Ontario.

topic or to others who you think might be interested.
