Hot on the heels of our recent five-county 1851 census update, we’ve added seven more complete counties.
These newly-transcribed records give you the chance to search for those ancestors you can’t find on other versions of the census. And all the ancestors you’ve already discovered can be viewed again on our new high-quality images – probably the clearest and most faithful online reproductions available.

Discover your ancestor’s precise age
1851 was the first census to reveal the precise age of each householder – on the 1841 census everyone over 15 had their age rounded down.

More counties coming soon.
Seven complete counties, comprising 3.8 million records, have been added to the 1901 census and are ready for you to search.
The new additions are:
19.7 million 1901 census records
We now have over 19.7 million 1901 census records, each one freshly and faithfully transcribed from original documents, and made available alongside newly scanned high-quality images. This means that well over half the census is now online. The remaining counties will follow soon.
