Ancestry 1911 Census complete

Great news that Ancestry now has the complete 1911 census indexed, it still has the final column that asks about infirmities covered, but no doubt that will be revealed in due course.

The 1911 is important, as all the census are, but especially so as not many years afterwards WW1 started and many of the young men recorded on this census went off to fight the war to end all wars. What a wonderful concept that was and it must have been a great rallying cry for recruitment. We all know that it didn’t work out like that, but as I work through the census adding the information to my genealogy I shall give a special thought to those of my ancestors who didn’t return for the fields of France.
