Millions find their 1911 ancestors online (UK)

Over 1.5 million people visited the new website 1911census.co.uk in its first four weeks. The website is run by findmypast, in association with The National Archives. Over 27 million English 1911 census entries - 80 per cent of the English records - are online. In most cases you can view the householder's entry in their own handwriting. Records from the remaining counties of England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, as well as the naval and overseas military records, will be made available over the coming months
