Only the 1841 census was rounded up or down
I don't think age was important to our ancestors and as most of them were uneducated couldn't 'work it out' as many of us often have to !!!!!!!!!!

Paul,

This is the site for IGI

http://www.familysearch.org/

If you click on the search tab and then choose IGI from the left hand column you can narrow down the search using the various boxes.

The only census where rounding was used officially was 1841 where adult ages were rounded down to the nearest 5 years which could make people seem a bit younger on this census but ages are not always that reliable on any census.

Also baptisms did sometimes take place later than might be expected so the birth and baptism year do not always match.

Hope this helps.

Afternoon,

Cheers for all the help everyone! Much appreciated. Another quick question though(Okay, perhaps two)....!!!

The IG index: If I find a potential match within it, how do I go about viewing the original document? Is this actually possible, and will it show any more detail than is listed from a search online ie. Name of a Church where, say, a christening took place? Would I have to go down to my nearest Family History Centre?

Cheers!

Often there are church films which have not been transcribed to the commonly used search page.  I have ordered a film using a 'town' keyword, which the Mormans have in stock and found German ancestors who are not on the name pages.

On the www.familysearch.org website you will see at the top is 'Library' then on the right hand side you can click on either keyword, name, etc.   You can either search by parish or wade through county films.  I'm sure you should be able to find something.

Take a note of any film numbers which interest you and you would like to rent and either find a local Church of Latter Day Saints or ask at your library to see if they provide the same service as the church.

Good luck,
Rena
