Hooray, the 1911 census of England and Wales is now available on line. It provides a record of everyone who lived in England and Wales at that time and gives a unique snapshot of the lives of your ancestors.
Searching is free but you pay to view the full record. It's easy to use and a whole lot of fun.A friend who was asked to beta test the site over the weekend (how hard would that be!) did admit to making a glutton of himself – and believe me I think you could be easily hooked.
