TheGenealogist.co.uk is transcribing the 1911 census records to create fully searchable records, using their unique search tools including the Keyword Mastersearch, Family Forename Search and House and Street Search.
The 1911 census was taken on the 2nd April and contains millions more records than the previous 1901 census. This is the first available census to be filled in by your ancestors, enabling you to view your ancestors handwriting.
The 1911 is thought to be one of the most important record sets as it will show family records in detail before the WW1. It will give details of where your ancestors lived, who with, age, place of birth and occupation as you would expect.
Additional pieces of information included for the first time are nationality, duration of current marriage, number of children born within that marriage, number of living children and the number of any children who had died. Extra occupation information may show details of the industry in which they worked.
With access to high-resolution colour images, your ancestors own handwriting and the extra information provided on the census you can really bring your ancestors to life.
It's not just census that you can get online to help with your family history research. TheGenealogist offers all these different types of data in a premium subscription:
