150 born in Greece - Chicago Voter Registers 1888-1892

This is interesting!  

FamilySearch.org has a FREE database titled "Illinois, Chicago, Voter Registers 1888-1892".  It includes 150 people born in Greece.  The interesting thing is that these 150 people would have had to be naturalized citizens of the U.S., prior to 1888-1892, in order for them to register to vote.

You will be able to see the indexed information on FamilySearch.org.  To see the digitized copy of the actual Voter Register you will have to visit a Family History Center or a Family Search Affiliate Library.
