Judy we are distantly related, Anthony Oates who died at Hamsterley in 1799 is my 6 x great grandfather!  His son George baptised 1766 is my line of descent.

This tells you how to report transcription errors without having purchased the transcript.

1921 Census "status"  Any other options other than "single" and "married"?

My g/mother appears as head.  Why did she not add widow?

Column B is headed 'relationship to head of household'

Column E is headed 'marriage or orphanhood'.    Anyone aged 15 and should should be recorded as either single, married, widowed or divorced.

Like others have said I don't understand why people expect it to be free in the format it is being made available.

When I first started my research the 1891 census was the most upto date one available.
 These were on microfilm, which all had to be searched manually.  If you were lucky a family history society might have produced some sort of index to help you find possible ancestors/relations.

None of the census were available to me from the comfort of my own home, visits to Archives and libraries for my relevant counties of interest were needed.

Anyone who has taken up this hobby post Ancestry, FindMyPast etc does not realise how lucky they are to have vast collections of records available to them, for a fee, in the comfort of their own home.  I'm lucky myself to have access to some of these too as I never managed to make trips to some counties I was interested in.

I have 19 direct ancestors on the 1921 census, probably 9 or 10 individual households.  I'll happily be paying to view them tomorrow.

When new newspapers are added to the BNA they are also added to FindMyPast so you won't gain anything taking out a BNA sub.

I've got several birth certs from the early days of civil registration that have the time of birth but none have been confirmed as a multiple birth. I also have several death certs with the time of death on!

I have 2 instances of twins in my tree that don't have the time of birth on the certs as they were registered separately on different days.  One set of twins appear in different quarters of the birth index too!

I couldn't see that this mentioned in any of the 1921 census threads (but certainly could have missed it)....

Can anyone tell me if one needs to have a sub to FindMyPast in order to be able to also access the 1921 census transcripts/images? I know the FindMyPast website mentions a discount for a particular sub but doesn't seem to say whether one can view the records without a payed sub that I can see?


They donít make it clear do they, just mention the discount for pro subscribers.  I presume the 100 year rule applies, so again many entries redacted.
I canít see many people taking a sub and then paying again for the 1921.

There won't be any redacted entries as it being released in line with the 100 rule.
