  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. 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'...

  1. Same Person, in different locations

    Iím not sure how common this occurrence is but Iíve found an individual twice in the same census, once with their parents and siblings and once with their grandparents. I can envisage how it could happen, simply filled in the census at different times of the day, but is it a frequent occurrence? ...

  2. 1939 Register

    I have been doing a little bit of research on one of the lines of my family that I know little about and this has led me to an entry in the 1939 Register that has me a little puzzled. Now I know I can't give you full details, but bear with me. My grandfather's cousin (on his mother's side)...

  4. Recording Reference Numbers 1911

    The new census pages, when we download them from the site, have a very long reference number attached.

  5. basic census question

    this is probably pretty basic. I don't fully understand why someone's place of birth changes from census to census. If you were born in a little hamlet near a village near a town near a bigger town, then you were born in the hamlet, not the big town. Did the enumerator "re-interpret" a person's...
