  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...

  1. Ask the experts

    I have a serious gap in my knowledge about Census returns. There is a very specific area of the Barnsley/District for which I am attempting to find information. The area was populated as far back as 1100+ and over the years has been known by several different local names. I have no known...

  3. 1939 Register

    I taken the opportunity of this relatively quiet period to tidy up and revisit certain parts of my family tree that I haven't looked at for a number of years, and that includes adding in references to the 1939 Register where appropriate. I have been taken aback by the number of times I have come...
