Finding a census record using the address.
« on: Friday 11 August 06 13:05 BST (UK) »
I wonder if anyone can help me. I recently saw a post asking how to look up an address in a census and find who lived there. I briefly looked at it but didn't take the details in. Now I need to do this myself

I can't find this post and hope someone can point me in the direction of it!

The address I'm looking for is 18 Mountjoy Place, Newport, Monmouthshire in the 1891 census. I suscribe to Ancestry but I'm having a dozy day and can't work it out.

Hi Feejay
Go to 1891 Wales census, scroll down click on Monmouthshire, click on Newport, then go through each description of enumeration district until you spot Mountjoy Place - could be covered by more than one district. Then click on district and go through the images.
Hope that helps
Cheers Jan ;)
