About this project This collection contains voter registration cards covering mainly Paris, the old Seine department (corresponding to current departments of Haut-de-Seien 92, Seine-Saint-Denis 93, and Val de Marne 94) and other various cities of France. The language is French and the information is handwritten, but the cards are preprinted so the information to be keyed is easily found. The cards reveal the name, birthplace, birth date, and residence of the voter. Because there is only one person per card the image set includes five cards and the project difficulty level is average.
