1881 Cencus-Any Problems ?
« on: Saturday 01 April 06 13:00 BST (UK) »
Is anyone else having a problem with the 1881 on Ancestry ?
Im finding that you can search by name, but when you put anything else in eg parish, birthyear etc it just wont work properly

I'm having problems too.  It's only when you use the exact search and then try and put extra information, eg if you put "John" born in "Cheshire" it doesn't bring any results.  And I'm sure that there were some John's born in Cheshire on the 1881 census!

Hi
I had the same problem last night. It just would not accept any other information to search on other than name. All the other censuses were working fine.

Hi guys

Thanks for posting this - I thought my PC was on the blink!
When I got nothing, I tried to redefine & it was putting male or female in the county of birth box  :o

Then my copy of NBI wouldn't load either & I was beginning to feel got at.

Need a soothing cup of herbal tea  :D

Don't understand this. I never use exact search so have just been playing with it and it gives me results whatever I search on.

Hi Joe

It seems to be working for me.  Is it sorted now or are you still having the same problem?

Best wishes
