Many years ago I helped to index the 1841 and 1851 Census returns for Sheffield - hand written on cards and stored in filing cabinets !!! These were eventually filmed and it was quite strange when looking at the film in later years sometimes to see my own handwriting. I do not know if they have ever been put on computer, and I do not know either whether they were kept in Local Studies or transferred when the Archives Office was relocated, but I believe the films still exist.
Archives at Sheffield.firstname.lastname@example.org
Local Studies at email@example.com
The 1861 Census was indexed and published by Sheffield Family History Society, again many years ago, but copies should still be available in Archives.
Best of luck - Eileen :)

Dear Eileen and Pauline,
Thanks for your help. Not an easy family to follow , as there are so many.
The 1861 group are certainly the correct ones. As Tesco says "every little helps".
Thanks again, Roy

Eileen, I have viewed films of your index cards many times at the Sheffield LDS Records Office at Grenoside. Thank you for your help!

To Alnat - how nice to hear from you and to know that the indices I helped with about 25 years ago are still in use. This was the very first project I worked on, and was done by what was known as the South Yorkshire Record Office situated near the bottom of The Moor in Sheffield - closed down some time ago when Sheffield was rebuilding that part of the city. It was convenient as it had its own car park, and I could call in, pick up a set of photocopied sheets and about 400 record cards which I worked on at home, walk up The Moor to shop, have lunch, return to the car and drive home. In total I think I filled out some 40 000 cards in a total of some hundreds of thousands. It was a very different life then without computers !!
Does anyone else remember 'slips' in shoeboxes ?
