Ancestry adds Anglesey, Wales, Electoral Registers, 1832-1977

Are your ancestors among the 2.3% of the population of Wales that lived in Anglesey? If so check this database.
The Anglesey Archives is the source of the 57 volumes with 467,743 entries within the 145 years encompassed by this database.
Electoral registers typically provide a name and place of abode, and older registers may include a description of property and qualifications to vote. Registers were compiled at a local level, with names appearing alphabetically within wards/districts.
If you have problems bringing up the search box, as I did, you can either browse or wait for Ancestry to fix the problem.
