FMP adds 1861 Scottish census, Manchester Police Index 1812-1941 and Prestwich Asylum Admissions 1851-1901

Three new databases, all transcriptions or indexes without original images,  appeared at Find My Past for the end of the month.

The 1861 census of Scotland is now available adding to those for 1841 and 1851. Note that there is no separate database entry, you search 1861 and select Scotland in the drop down menu for country.

The Manchester Police Index 1812-1941 contains 10,636 records with information about: age, place of birth, religion, trade and whether married or single. You may also be able to find out details of previous employment – in many cases involving military service – or reason for leaving.

Prestwich Asylum Admissions includes  22,722 records of male and female admissions from January 1851 to March 1901 containing basic information on: when the patient was admitted, age, occupation, marital status, religious affiliation and number of children, as well as an outline of how they came to be admitted. Later admissions may be supplemented by a photograph.

These are indexes with no access to original images.
