**1911 Census Requests and Replies - Guidance - updated**
« on: Friday 23 January 09 21:51 GMT (UK) »
RootsChat's position - under guidance from the management - is that we cannot allow look-ups for the 1911 census either to be requested or offered.

This census is exclusively available online and anyone responding to a request or offering a look-up is technically breaking the terms and conditions of their subscription with whichever provider.

Remember that the index can be searched free of charge. RootsChat has a thread which gives a lot of helpful suggestions about getting the best from the free index and users should always point others in the direction of this topic :,492718.0.html

Any information that the moderators see that cannot possibly be obtained from the free index is likely to be deleted e.g. number of years married, number of children born to the couple

The following still remain in place:

You may NOT

post full images;
post screen-shots of 1911 site which include the transcription or search results;
copy and paste transcriptions;
make overt look-up requests - you may find it removed without warning;
offer unwanted images to others.

Any images and transcriptions that are found will be removed.

Best of luck in your search.
