Digging into the Census

 One of the most rewarding and informative sources for Family, House and Local History the ten-yearly census returns from 1841 to 1921 are a vital resource. They anchor people and places and provide clues to move further back in time. Is that all there is to the census? Join Jackie Depelle to make sure you are getting the most from these record collections which aren’t restricted to just this date range.

 Bridging the Gap : Tracing forwards from 1921

 A fundamental research strategy for building a family tree is to work from the Known to the Unknown. Now the 1921 census is available that information can be worked in conjunction with the 1939 register to complement living memory and oral history. However there are additional records to help roll our research back to this latest release, join us to see what’s available.

Do bring your questions along for discussion.
