What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection includes voter registration lists (censuses) from the three provinces in Spain’s autonomous community of Aragón: Huesca, Teruel, and Zaragoza. The records date between 1890 and 1934 and are in Spanish. The census records are printed (versus handwritten) in books. Names are organized by province, district, and section (in descending order). Within each section, names are organized alphabetically by last name. Only persons old enough to vote are included in the records.
