FreeCEN updates

Given that transcriptions are never perfect it's always good to have a second, and sometimes third opinion. That goes for the census, and the capability is especially welcome when it's free.

Friend and BIFHSGO member Christine Jackson sent me a note that Sussex volunteers are now over half way through putting the 1871 Census for Sussex on line, with 1891 and 1861 already completed. The database can be searched (for free, of course) at http://www.freecen.org.uk/cgi/search.pl.

There's a listing of what's available on FreeCEN at http://www.freecen.org.uk/statistics.html
