It gives me great pleasure to tell you that today we launched the first part of the England and Wales 1911 Census, in the form of the Summary Books.
For those of you who may not have caught the first announcement, we reached an agreement last October with The National Archives to acquire and publish online the 1911 England and Wales Census. Because it is such a large collection we’re putting it up in stages, starting with today’s Summary Books.
The 1911 Census Summary Books are a fantastic resource which can help you cross-track your ancestors through other censuses, telephone books, military records and other records, during the early part of the 20th century.
The complete set of 1911 Census record images will launch online in early 2011, followed by the indexes, which will be made available in sections throughout the remainder 2011.
