  12. Death registration - where?

    Apologies if this has been asked before - I think it has recently but I can't find it. If someone died away from home, (1860s) would their death have been registered where they died or where they usually resided, or was there no hard and fast rule? Carol

  19. 1841 UK Census - "Not in County"

    If someone shows up in the 1841 UK Census, but there is a note next to their name which states: "Not in county," what does this mean? Where would they be? Was this a standard notation to mean something? If they aren't "in county" why are they being included in the census in a particular register?...
