If I were you, while in Ancestry I'd go and look at the image of the
roll and see what is to be found there. Then you'll have a better idea
of whether what you're finding in the microfiche rolls are the same
document or not, the same electorate or not, etc.
Then you can also save yourself a copy of that image while you're still
working with Ancestry. If you're working with a library edition, save
it to a memory stick (or whatever) if they'll let you. Don't "share" by
emailing yourself a huge pile of images - Ancestry will only let you
view so many once you get home before it expects you to take out a
subscription to view more.
Hope this helps. :-)
