Picture1Hooray the first batch of the 1911 census is indexed and ready for searching on Ancestry.co.uk. If you have people in Wales, the Channel Isles and the Isle of Man then you are all set to go. The rest of us will have to wait a little longer, but it will be worth it.

The census is available on Ancestry, but you have to search page by page …. just like the old days. How quickly we have forgotten how things used to be!!

Announcement from Ancestry.co.uk
1911 Census – the first stage

clip_image002[5]Good news! As of right now, anyone with a full Ancestry.co.uk membership can see every page from the 1911 Census. If you’re an Essentials, Premium or Worldwide member, you can start tracking down your family straight away in scanned record images from all over England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

This is the first stage in our 1911 Census release. We’ve made all the scanned records available straight away, so you can benefit from them wherever your forebears were based.

At present, you can’t search the records like our other censuses. Instead, you need to use other resources, such as the 1911 Summary Books and 1901 Census, to work out where your family were living, then browse the new census records by county and district.

We’ve already started transcribing the records so we can make them fully searchable as quickly as possible. We’ll keep you updated on our progress and give you further release dates are soon as we can.

Until all the indexing is completed we shall just have to search the census like we did in the “old days” ! Actually that is no bad thing as it is amazing how many times you can scoop up other family members living nearby and it also gives you a sense of what the neighbourhood was like. Go and enjoy!!


Scotland 1911 Census

I expect you all know by know that the 1911 census for Scotland was clip_image002released on 5 April. It can be accessed via the Scotland’s People website. It is pay to view on a purchased credits basis and that isn’t cheap if you have a lot of people to find. I prefer site where you can buy a yearly subscription and you can search during that time to your heart’s content.
