Hi. The 1901 census is at Another good site to look at is they have various records there, but be aware that they are mostly copies of the original. I agree with the people who expressed concern at having to put living relatives information in so clearly, this is the reason i have not yet put in my family tree, as i am in no doubt that several of my family would not agree to give me consent. Also, is there an easier way to read the messages? Like, seperate them out into topics/geographical areas/surnames, and/or have an index that we can look at? Tis good stuff though, i look forward to seeing it grow! Lynne
