Sorry if this is a really dumb beginners question...but if the 1911 census is now available (in places anyway) why can't I request a look up via this site for the 1911 census? (Not that I'm actually ready to, but I'm puzzled, that's all!)

Sorry, but I do not belong to A........y who I think I am right in saying have taken this over. The G.........t does not have it at the moment.

It is down to who can pay the most for it and then charge membership to view.

on f.m.p its £6.95 for 30 credits which is enough to let you look at 2 census returns for 1911, they have just sent me a mail to say they have an offer £59.95 for 6 months for the 1911. so still quite expensive, i seem to remember a post on the forum saying that is is free for certain areas. as for the local libraries i will check on that next time im in ours see if we have it. I have subscription to axxxxry, but there has been no mention of it being on there as yet for free, possibly they may introduce it at a reduced rate , heres hoping.suex

hi...the offer has now been withdrawn,,as i found ouy when i visited Manchester central library. Apparently,they have run out of funds to subsidise it. The only place to get it,,is Find my past. I have now subscribed,,as i was already a member and recieved a discount to resubscribe. I have been like a kid at christmas,,,having a brand new census to look at !!

Thanks. Yes, quite expensive - I don't know how many census returns I've looked at on ancestry, must be hundreds - I don't think I could bear to sign up to a credit based system! And way too expensive on top of everything else. Oh well, I'll just have to wait and visit the NA next time I'm over. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the info on the 1911 not being on Ancestry. That is all I have access to through our library and the historical society here. I guess I will have to wait until I get there in September. Knowing saves be all the frustration of blaming myself for being so technoinept.
Thanks

Hi Braisher
1911 is now available from several providers, Originally it was only provided by one who had sole rights to it. They were very keen to prevent sites like this giving out info which they had spent a lot of money transcribing. You cannot blame them for this,

Hi Rune.

The 1911 census is on Ancestree now, at least for most areas it is. In time it will cover all of England, Wales, once it has been transcribed. I do believe it is almost complete. But mis-transcriptions may still be a problem.

It's the F.M.P / Ancestry transcriptions that are copyright.
