VOTERS' LISTS
OCCUPATION CODES

These are the 2- and 3-character codes used to describe each voters' occupation (or marital status in the case of most women) in various Lanark County voters' lists. I created these codes in order to keep the width of each entry within one screen line. In most cases, the full text of the occupation was given in the original voters' list.
