  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Missing bits of censuses

    There have been one or two posts recently which touched on the problem of bits of censuses being missing. For those who didn't know about it, the National Archives catalogue can help to identify many missing chunks. The general method is - 1. On TNA search page, enter 'missing OR wanting'...

  2. Social History

    I wish the British censuses asked the sort of social history questions that the later USA censuses asked: How old were you when you first married - that can tell you that there has been more than one marriage; Do you own or rent your home? What's its value or rent? In addition to your job,...

  3. Name with no Details - Anyone Seen This Befor

    I was on the hunt for someone and found them in a cottage in the 1871 Census for Scotland when I was in the GROS but the entry puzzled me. It consisted of the housekeeper, a domestic servant and two farm servants with the usual details. However, above it was the name of the farmer (110 acres...

  5. Charles CHAPPLE

    I'm trying to find out when one branch of the family moved from Devon to London by asking if SKS may be able to look them up for me in either the 1871 or 1861 census please.

  7. 1911 Census Search

    I am trying to find my grandfather in the 1911 Census. He is John Ager, born 1881 in Ipswich. He joined the Royal Marines in November 1901 (I have him as a civilian in that census) and his service records would suggest that for all of 1911 he was on board ship. Would he have been included in the...
