Is the Birmingham 1861 Census Searchable?
« on: Saturday 05 February 05 19:56 GMT (UK) »
Can AKS  please tell me if there is a searchable index for the Saint Pauls District of Birmingham on the 1861 census ?

I would like to request a look up if the 1861 census is searchable by name please folks.

On another point , It was a very wet & grey Saturday afternoon in Bromsgrove, Worc, UK  so I spent the afternoon logging on everyone of my ancestors on the 1881 census I could find, on  to http://www.lostcousins.com/ not sure if I will be successful or not in making a connection but hers keeping my fingers crossed.

Has anyone else made a connection on lostcousins.com yet ?

Kind regards.

Hi Ray

Just joined this forum and have been looking through all my known areas of research and came across your post.

I joined "Lost cousins" a few weeks ago and have had a contact with a family member.  I like you were a bit sceptical but they do come through.  The more rels you can pull off the 1881 the better.  I need to go back on and put more there.

The trouble is when you don't know who exactly are your true rels?  The more people that join in the better the results will be.

regards
