  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Posting Census Information

    Many sites - both pay-per-view and free sites - claim copyright over the layout of information displayed and also publish terms and conditions of use. Many people use these sites and do not look at any of this. The result is that they post messages in which they simply copy and paste...

  4. Road name 1871 census Sunderland

    In the 1871 census there is an address 'Back of Low Road in Open' in Bishopwearmouth, Sunderland. Is this really the name of a road or does it indicate the family were homeless? Any thoughts appreciated
