      As any genealogist knows, among the primary building blocks of family
      history research are census returns and birth, marriage and death indexes.
      Accordingly, we are pleased to announce that a full transcription and
      original images of the 1861 census are now available online at

      highlights is that when you search for an individual, you will also be able

      coming few months, we will launch further data, county by county, and we
      will notify you each time a new set is ready.

      To help you start using the census, you can also read a new article on our
      website titled 'Understanding the Census'. The article has been written by
      Dr. Nick Barratt, the resident genealogist on the BBC's 'Who Do You Think
      You Are?' TV programme.
