Glad this came back up....I too have saved a copy of it. It's great.

I think there are a lot of members in the local Seniors Genealogy group that I help out with who would love to have a copy, if that is OK with you, Brambletye?

Would it be worth incorporating the 5 year rounding up on the 1841 Census?

Might perhaps be a note?  It usually sorts itself out for those still living and on later Census returns,and I think you would still have to a bit of  calculation on paper to adjust earlier records.

Still,I think you are correct,Martin. At the least it would remind researchers of the anomaly.

That's a really good idea. It is amazing the number of people whom I help that say "that can't possibly be my relative. The age is not right", even when everything else matches perfectly!

Hi Dee,

Feel free to pass on the Ready Reckoner - glad it's turned out so useful!

I take Martin's point about the rounding on the 1841, but I think the only way I can make mention of this is to incorporate a footnote, otherwise we'd need a separate grid. Problem with the 1841 is that some enumerators did actually put precise ages, some rounded to the nearest five for adults only, some rounded for children over the age of ten as well, and for the over 60s, the rounding was meant to be to the nearest ten years!

At some point I will update the grid to incorporate dates for the 1911 - has anyone seen any recent news on that? whether we can realistically expect it early or if the Powers That Be are going to hold out on us till the full 100 years is up after all?

 :) Thankyou so much.  You have really worked well on this.  It is much appreciated.  My maths were never any good and I had to take a calculator with me everytime I went to the genealogy centre.

Once again, thankyou

Well I never knew that bit.  It might be a real help in tracking down the origin of the current top of my tree!
Thanks

Brambletye

Thanks for that, I'd not thought of doing that, just the usual bits of paper or fingers!
