Can’t find your ancestor in the 1901 census?

11 Aug

If you have been struggling to find you ancestor (or anyone else for that matter) in the 1901 census for England and Wales then it might be worth trying the brand-new version announced by Findmypast.com.

According to their blog, they are “confident our new transcription is the most accurate online and will reveal many individuals whose names have been wrongly transcribed by other websites”. Not only is there a new transcription to search but the census pages have been scanned at a higher quality as well.

Normally you won’t find me straying very far from their competition over at ancestry.co.uk when it comes to searching census returns, but it is always worth checking elsewhere when the individual you are searching for just doesn’t show up on one or other of the sites.
