Research before records were available online

Hello! I hope it is okay to post this here.

I am looking for a huge favour. I am a post-graduate student currently writing my dissertation
on the census.

Primarily, I am looking to discuss the experiences of individuals who used the census before the introduction of mass digitalisation and online transcriptions on websites such as FindMyPast, etc, in order to discuss the differences newer technologies have made to genealogy research.

It does not matter if your initial experience was many years ago, or if you only briefly began searching before giving up, all experiences would be very helpful.

If you would not mind discussing your experiences with me, please respond to this topic or send me a private message.

This is just an initial post to gauge interest, but I promise that the actual research (probably a quick online
interview/questionnaire) will be very short, and will take only a few minutes of your time, but will be
invaluable to my research!

Thank you for your time!
