Origins.net has joined the websites that have a full index to and digitised images of the 1901 census for all counties in England and Wales.
Origins.net has sent the following message:
“The 1901 census includes the personal details of 32,461,105 individuals and provides a snapshot in time for all households including any servants, lodgers, or visitors. For each person present in each household on the night of 31 March/1 April 1901, details are given of their names, ages, address, occupations, relationship to head of household and place of birth.
“Census records can be used not only to further your search for ancestors, but also to broaden your knowledge of the wider family or your community, supplementing information found in other sources. Geographic mobility can be easily tracked through the given birthplaces, and social mobility through addresses and occupations and open up other avenues for research. The census records are searchable by name, age, parish and county.
