CENSUS RE­TURNS

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - SCOTTISH ANCESTORS -

Cen­suses were taken in Scot­land ev­ery 10 years from 1801, but they be­came more de­tailed from 1841. They have been in­dexed from 1841 to 1911 on scot­land­speo­ple.gov.ukk (later cen­suses are closed for 100 years). Some pre-1841 cen­suses have sur­vived.

Only the enu­mer­a­tors’ re­turns sur­vive for 1911, not the orig­i­nal house­hold­ers’ forms. Scot­land­sPeo­ple is the only web­site that has the orig­i­nal im­ages for 18411911. How­ever, bet­ter use of pay-per-view cred­its can be made by search­ing the free 1841-1891 in­dexes on fam­i­lysearch.org.uk. The full range of in­dexes for 1841-1911 are avail­able at ances­try.co.uk and find­my­past.co.uk, and the­ge­neal­o­gist.co.uk has a sam­ple of the 1851 Scot­tish census.
