Searching Census by address
« on: Tuesday 10 February 09 12:07 GMT (UK) »
I would like to search the 1891 census by address. From previous posts it would appear possible, BUT HOW?

Being of a persuasion that's careful with money, the next question is, can I do it for free?

nothing is free ! FH overall isnt an expensive hobby tho ......

You will need access to the 1891 census which will involve a subscription or pay to view - or buy a set of Discs on EBay, which depending on the source provider may have a street index.

You might try googling the parish and 1891 census - there are sites around where the census has been transcribed, might get lucky, but they wont have the original enumerators pages online !

There are ways by using directories which I have done many times  :) What address are you looking for.?

Directories are indeed excellent - however they fall short of the information about a household typically found in the census.

The Genealogist  has search by address on most censuses, but it's a pay site.  As Newf says, nothing is for free, although I would be happy to do the odd lookup for you  :)

I am able to search the 1891 by address, if you will tell us what it is.

Find My Past has an address search function for the 1891 - it's also a sub/pay to view site.
