      Another generation of census data available exclusively at British
      Origins


      These are exciting times for genealogists and family historians. Hot
      on the heels of the 1861 census, the earliest name-inclusive census
      of England is now available on British Origins at
      http://www.britishorigins.com

      Researchers using the 1841 England and Wales Census can unveil the
      lives of prominent figures from this period, such as Isambard Kingdom
      Brunel.

      I.K. Brunel, chief engineer of the Great Western Railway was
      responsible for projects including amongst others, the Bristol to
      London railway, Box Tunnel and the impressive Bristol Temple Meads
