Herb Lake 100

This is a copy of the list of electors for Herb Lake, 1958. There are some misspellings and the correct spelling, or comment, is in brackets. Some of these people lived at Wekusko.  It is interesting that married women are identified by their husband’s name, and their name is added in brackets.  Women who were housewives had no occupation, although being a homemaker at Herb Lake, without electricity or running water, was a full-time job.  This list will help with the identification of people in old photos because it gives a list of people in the area.  Once the photos are up, the photos can be linked with this list. 47 people were registered to vote at Herb Lake.
