Long Lost in 1911 census
« on: Monday 13 September 10 15:13 BST (UK) »
I am trying to locate the whereabouts of 3 members of the Long family in the 1911 census. 
In 1901, the family - father William, mother Eliza Jane and 5 of their 6 children, William, Samuel, Jean, Frances and Margaret were living in Muff Co. Donegal with Eliza's mother, Jane Brooks.
Eliza died in 1906 and so in the 1911 census the children were living with various relatives and I have found eldest son James and his brother William living with grandmother Jane Brooks in Muff.  The youngest daughter Margaret was living with her aunt Frances McConnell (my husband's grandmother) and family in Belfast.  Samuel was in the British Royal Navy on a ship in the China Sea.
I cannot anywhere in Ireland or UK find William snr, Frances and Jean.
In 1912 all the family except Margaret and Samuel signed the Ulster Declaration/Covenant. By now Jean was living in Belfast with the McConnells.  William and Frances were living at 6 Georges Street Londonderry City.  There do not appear to be any houses in this street recorded in the 1911 census although neighbouring Henry Street is listed.
Please can anyone shed any light on the mystery of where William, Frances and Jean were hiding in 1911?

Thanks very much in anticipation!

Thinking it was often the Head of household who completed the return (so could get details wrong) I missed out the County of birth and status.  I found this William of the correct age and still a joiner.

I do hope this is Margaret for you if her middle name is Elizabeth?  She is a neice in this household and right age.

I note one of the sons also has the middle name Brooks (per William snr's M-i-L)

Ooops just noticed you already have her!  :P

Could this be Frances (stretching her age a bit!  :P)  in service?

Doubtful..born Dublin!

You need to go to advanced options and put in birth county, age +/-5 yrs etc
