Hi Susan,

I am sorry, I am having trouble understanding what it is you are unable to do. You mentioned the reference numbers I provided. If so I did not provide a link for census entries, hence my confusion. I provided a link to give a little information on the Parish of Hawkchurch and another link to the IGI.

Do you mean the census reference HO107/1862 Folio 328 Page 10?
These are the reference details for the family in the 1851 census. They would allow you to view the original either via a subscription site (such as Ancestry/Find my Past etc.) or using a CD Rom or to order a copy of the image from the records office. You could also view the original at a library where they have Ancestry Library edition available. These are the only ways to access original census entries.  There are transcripts of some censuses available at http://freecen.rootsweb.com/cgi/search.pl depending on the county and year you are after - you will need to check for coverage. http://freecen.rootsweb.com/statistics.html Unfortunately very little available for Dorset but you will find some transcriptions available via the OPC site http://www.opcdorset.org/index.htm

If you are referring to baptisms from http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=igi/search_IGI.asp&clear_form=true (These can be extracted records - transcribed from the original entries in the parish registers - generally quite accurate. On the IGI we also find submitted entries - these entries have been submitted by members of the LDS Church and do need to be verified.

Cheers Kris  :)

Hi Kris:  Thanks for your message.  Being a beginner with this genealogy interest, I haven't quite found my way yet.  Obviously, I need to expand my search sources as other people seem to be finding so much more than I can find with greater details such as occupations being included.  I do appreciate everyone's help from RootsChat, this is an amazing site with amazingly helpful people.  Susan

Susan,
The Registration District for the 1861 Census is Bridport

Harriet has a younger sister Sarah, age 3, born Whitechurch, on the same Census. The birth of a Sarah Brown was registered Dec 1858  5a  365 Bridport

The birth of a Harriet Brown was registered
a. Dec 1854 Bridport 5a 379
b. Jun 1857 Bridport 5a  297

Might be worth investing in Certificate a. possibly?

regards

Hanes:  How kind of you to send this information to me.  This will really help as I was at the wall with this search.  I will certainly pick up this search now with this new information.  Could you tell me what source you found this census on, please, as I can't understand why I couldn't find this previously?  Thanks so very much.  I really, really appreciate this information.  Regards, Susan

Hi Susan,

These census entries have been transcribed and are freely available through the OPC sites for Wooton Fitzpaine and Netherbury.

http://www.opcdorset.org/index.htm

The easiest way to view the original entries is to take out a subscription or visit a library with access to Ancestry Library edition. You will find most major libraries world wide offer this service.

Cheers Kris  :)
