Hi Everyone,
Is it just me or has anyone else had trouble getting info from the 1881 Census?
Iv"e found my Family (Donnelly) in 1901 1891 1871 1861 even 1851 but 1881 it"s as if they"ve been Abducted by Aliens!
Any Suggestions greatly Appreciated as per usual
Happy Hunting Everyone
Best Wishes Littlemo

Could be the spelling of the surname is at fault. Try putting in firstnames only and all other data and it might show up in some wierd and wonderful spelling. I have a Frederick Bullivant who shows up as a Freda Budgen. so try other family members names too. I also have one family member who was wrongly listed as daughter to the landlord.
