  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. Census - Creating EE-compliant Citations

    Has anyone experience with creating fully compliant Evidence Explained citations for the 1841 - 1911 Census of England and Wales?

  2. Unhappy William McIntyre

    Hi I have been searching for William McIntyre for some time. His later life is not such a mystery as I know where he lived, married and died and that he was an Umbrella Maker amongst other things. He married Elizabeth Pollard in Kendal in the Catholic Church in 1871. At the time of his...

  3. Meaning of markups on a 1911 Census form?

    I have an image from the 1911 Census in which the name, "Head" and age for the original "Head" entry has been stricken out and the fellow's wife has "Head" written in the column adjacent to "Wife". The fellow signed the form, so he's not absent or dead (I do have a much later record of his burial)....

    Can anyone help me "decode" the the 1901 British Census jurisdictions and civil divisions on the 1901 Census? I'm using RootsMagic 7 and the template for the 1901 Census is asking for these two items. They give "Monmouthshire, Wales" as an example of the "Jurisdiction". They give "Bedwelty,...
