Censuses etc

Bookmark and Share

Census records are one of the most valuable resources for genealogists and family historians. They typically show the relationships between the members of a household, their ages, birthplaces, occupations, and of course where they lived at the time when the census was taken. In addition to census data, electoral rolls or registers are often useful (especially for countries and/or time periods for which censuses are not available) even though the availability of indexed rolls is patchy, and only those entitled to vote are included. Finally, poll books giving names, places of abode and/or of property owned and how people voted at elections (ballots were not always secret!), though limited in number, can also be revealing.
