Question: The 1911 census, how exciting, who else has managed to break some brick walls with this!?
I am dead excited by the release of this, it does cost a bit and its not completely complete but it has at least helped me work out where some family is that I couldnt previously find, who else has been helped by thisWww@QuestionHome@Com

I've managed to solve a few mysteries - the name of one of my mother's cousin's which she couldn't remember (she knew her only by a nickname, and had forgotten her real given name and surname) , what happened to one of my great-great-aunts (she remarried after being widowed), and when, how and why my mother's family moved to the Isle of Wight!.

The transcription is awful in places, though - I've so far reported eleven errors, and there are still relatives with bog-standard names that I can't find in the index (presumably mistranscribed)!. And it's a tad pricey!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Yeah i found out where my gandad was born and the correct spelling of my gt grandads unusual name, which was prob why i couldn't find him before!. I love the fact most of the records show their actual address too!. Oh and my mums mum, used to live round the corner from where she lives now! So exciting!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Found out about my dads bro7sis and two of his uncles from ww1!.
But what has just p£$^& me off is that on every site that i have been on it says( FREE) This is a big (FAT LIE) it's not choose you have to give your card details out!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
