Solving census problems

July 10th, 2008

Episode 48 of 495 episodes

David Annal takes a practical approach to overcoming the most common problems faced by family historians when using the 19th century census returns. It may seem that some of your ancestors are missing from the returns - this talk aims to convince you that, if your ancestors were living in England or Wales at the time of the census, they were almost certainly recorded and you should be able to find them. The odds are firmly stacked in your favour.
