Eileen Doherty: You can, the 1901 census is available at but you wont find anything after 1901. There are people transcribing the 1891 census, and if you look around ont he internet, it's possible that you will find other information, such as parish registers, at least in part available online for you. After 1901 you will have to search at the PRO for your births/marriages/deaths, although church records might allow you access as well (youi cant get them on microfiche after 1901) Lynne
